(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.

What are the pros? Summer or winter squash

What are the cons? Grows YUUUGE!!!!!

Review:

Such a garden spectacle. Spreads like wildfire so plan accordingly. I started growing up a trellis, then over the trellis and back to the ground. If you have the space I prefer the squash on the ground because they twist and turn for unique shapes, unlike linear shaped if they hang. Here's the thing, these babes grow fast- I learned to pick them small (5-9 inches long or less) for soft supple summer squash, any bigger they get mealy. I lost track of many in the garden and I just let them winter over. They become a deep orange in color and have the best squash flavor ever! I planted 2 seeds and I harvested hundreds of summer squash and I ended up with dozens of winter squash.

What are the pros? Flavor, Squash Bug Resistant

What are the cons? Nothing --

Review:

Squash bugs are a real problem in my community garden so growing zucchinis was almost impossible -- until I found these squash-bug-immune beauties. Plus their flavor is even better than young zucchinis. They also provide a constant supply of squash blossoms which make great soups and frittatas. The plants get absolutely huge -- I grow them on 9' tall bamboo teepees, but even so they need to be pruned occasionally to prevent them from taking over the whole garden.

Review:

I am amazed at this vegetable. Give it a trellis or trellis it as you would greenhouse tomatoes up a string and prune it. It produces so much and for such a long period. When you have just too much squash to eat let them mature and bulk up. When they are young they are the best zucchini. When mature- I have still have two in the basement now that I let mature and harden up in the sun with the rest of my winter squash, they are in pristine condition and it is Jan. 16th. Practical Advice- mix in lots of compost to ground before transplanting and top dress with compost just as they are starting to produce. Also don't transplant they too early as they are heirlooms and not modern hybrids, they will grow plenty fast and catch up to the other summer crops.

Review:

My second season with this squash. Picked very young.....excellent flavor and texture. Leave it to fully mature....nice hard shell, good flavor, excellent keeper. Some of the largest lay on the ground and never suffered rot like some of my other squash. This past season I planted along a trellis, and the strong vine and large leaves shaded the area nicely. My intended Winter squash crop didn't do well, so I let a lot of these fully mature. Glad I did. Will always have some growing in my garden.

What are the pros? Shrugs off squash bugs

What are the cons? Extremely long vines

Review:

This is so versatile. It is the best tasting summer squash when picked green. Nice creamy taste. If left to mature, its an excellent substitute for butternut and has excellent long term storage. When my zucchini is getting bombarded by squash bugs, Rampicante Squash produces reliably. I've even had a good harvest when I neglected the garden and the fruit had to develop in the weeds.
