(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? Dual use, pest resistant

What are the cons? Takes longer to set fruit

Review:

I've tried many varieties of summer squash in our current location. Whether it's yellow crookneck, standard zucchini, lemon squash or any other variety - the plants grow great, but I never get more than a couple of squash before bugs and borers kill the plant. Only the moschata squash varieties thrive for me. The first time I planted this squash I underestimated the size of these vines. I planted it in a raised bed with a five foot corner trellis. My garden area is a configuration of raised beds with earthboxes around the perimeter and industrial rubber backed carpet covering the walk space. The vines quickly grew out of their assigned space, ran down the carpets and into other raised beds. This year I'll plant them next to a tall metal arbor that's in another raised bed and hope they have enough space. They take longer to start setting fruit and mine didn't set as much fruit as standard zucchini did when I was able to successfully grow it, but it's wonderful.

Review:

We planted these on a lark in May of 2015 just because they sounded interesting - only 8 vines in a raised bed against the fence with a trellis it could climb. We just let it go and did not do much for it. Holy cow! These things were prolific! We had so much squash and they never stopped coming. We tried eating them as summer and winter - prefer them as a winter squash. And wow did they keep. I just left them in a corner of the kitchen in a bushel basket near the door, and truth be told, here in April of 2016, I still have two huge ones left that are in perfect condition. We even developed a special recipe just for this squash - a chicken-oregano pasta with spinach, pine nuts, and parmesan. This squash is a keeper, and to be quite honest we have had very mixed luck with squash.

What are the pros? Easy, huge, delicious

What are the cons? I want more

Review:

I have a 3' X 4' raised bed where I grew these. I planted seeds in early June under milk jugs for protection. They germinated quickly and grew like crazy. I had two plants that vined up to about 20' long. I harvested 1 squash as a summer squash which was great, tasted kind of like zucchini but then I left the rest on to mature into the fall. I harvested 67 lbs all together from two plants.

What are the pros? high producing

What are the cons? not a good winter squash

Review:

This squash was very easy to grow. As many other people have said the vine bores don't mess with it. How ever the squash bug will attack it but that's a easy fix just pick them off to control them. This squash taste the best as a summer squash at about 12 to 16 inches long. You can let it go to a winter squash but you seem to lose a lot of the flavor. I let a few ripen to a winter squash stage and so far have been storage for 2 months just to see how long they store for> I will continue to grow this squash for it's wonderful taste as a summer squash

What are the pros? Squash vine borer resistant

What are the cons? None

Review:

I have problems with vine borer's. They do not bother this squash. It's very good as a summer squash, as long as you don't let it get too big, 12 inches is good. Not so good as a winter squash. I let at least one grow to maturity to save the seeds.
