(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:

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.

New Favorite Squash

What are the pros? Great Flavor, Keeps Well

What are the cons? Wish it produced more

Review:

This is our new favorite squash. All of the seeds stay in the end instead of throughout the squash. It has a great flavor and can be used in many different ways. It curls if it allowed to grow on the ground but will grow straight if trellised. It is mid December and we still have 3 sitting in our kitchen waiting to be eaten. They have all grown a harder brown shell now. We planted some in a 3 sisters garden - they did okay. We planted others in direct sun - they did okay. We planted others in partial sun - some did well while others struggled. I would not plant them with 3 sisters again. I would definitely recommend trellising and planting many seeds. I will continue to plant these in our garden every year now, however I suggest testing with different soils, temps, and sun. Highly recommended!

What are the pros? Crazy growth

What are the cons? none

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.
