(C. moschata) 70 days. The famous Italian heirloom vining zucchini and pumpkin; long slender 15-inch fruit have a flat bulb at the bottom. They are one of the best eating summer squash: very tender, mild and sweet tasting. The flavor is superb! This squash is also great as winter squash. The Italians use it for stuffing in gnocchi and ravioli; the flesh is rich and flavorful, great for baking and pies! The vines produce good yields of this great all-purpose squash. The mature fruit grow very long. This one is in very high demand at specialty markets.

Review:

All my other squash was killed for 2 years running by squash borers. When I did my research this variety came out as being borer resistant. I often buy this and the Pennsylvania Dutch squash. I've never lost any of these plants to the borers. BUT this squash is also good as a summer squash, and with the long neck there is a ton of seed-free squash. I've cooked with this squash a little past the green stage in a stirfry and it was a good filler veggie. I have tasted better winter squash but none that I can reliably grow and this is good, just not squash to rave about. This squash has the best vegetable to effort ratio of anything I grow. I decided to plant extra and let it run across the field as pig fodder. I got 40ish good-sized squash from something like 5 hills! The joy of watching these squash take over the back yard, bloom like mad, then fill carts full of fun-looking squash makes them a must-have for me.

Review:

We had a late May frost this year so we got a late start. These things germinated quickly and started running vines. I figure I got about 4 plants. The first curlicue squashes formed in mid-June. some of the tips rotted away (similar to blossom end rot on a tomato) as we had a dry spell but the first large peach-colored squash was ready in late July. It curled up like a snake and weighed in at 16 lbs. The plants produced another 2 dozen or so mid- to large size squashes. Some of the vines crawled into the fruit trees and looooong squashes hung down. I measured 3 of them at 40 to 43" and 10-12 lbs each & had to cut them into 1-foot sections to fit them in the oven. The flesh was mild and yellow, not quite as flavorful as a butternut but dry and not watery. The last week of September had another 20 squashes forming that went into muffins and stir-fry. Still have 3 large ones ripening. Bonus: no vine borers, and the squash bugs left them mostly alone too. Definitely growing again!

Review:

Split seeds with my cousin and she picked this out. I was expecting a traditional zucchini type fruit (due to the name) but much to my surprise these monster squash were born and then as some of them sat on the vine the skin turned a soft fleshy orange (like butternut squash). I just thought that she miss labeled them but she didn't cause here they are. They can be eaten green or fleshy orange. Their "counter" life is a long time. They may weep a little out of their stem but my parents have had one on their counter for months and it just got more orange and is still firm. The flavor is a mild butternut squash. Great sauteed with butter and onions. And my neighbors made soup out of some that was really good. The neck is fairly uniformed all the way down to the "seed belly", as I call it. Makes for easy meals. If your feeling lazy just peel and cut the neck and and compost the whole "seed belly". I even spiralized this and sauted it. It got mushy so probably better baked like this.

Review:

I LOVE this squash. I planted 3 seeds by a 7' trellis and it grew very fast over the top and back down and tried to grow over everything in it's path. The flavor is wonderful. The squash seem to all develop differently. I had one that I didn't harvest until it was 32" long (I measured). The neck wasn't about 1-1/2" thick and the whole thing was tender and delicious. I had others that grew fatter and I harvested them when they were more around 15-18 inches long. I just cook them all according to how they grew. The really fat ones made wonderful soup. Some I cut off the bulb end, scooped out the seed, ground up the neck with breadcrumbs, egg, cheese and herbs, stuffed it into the bulb and baked it. I dehydrated several of them and intend to use them in soups. I have chopped them up with tomatoes and herbs and made a pasta sauce. Now we're getting a little tired of them so the rest (I think somewhere between 8-10 at this point) I'll let mature on the vine. Heartily recommend.

Review:

I love this squash! It is a huge vine which has grown up my trellis and back down again. They have a wonderful flavor, not watery like regular zucchini. It is my new favorite squash. We will definitely plant this one again.
