(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? Versatile, easy & delicous

What are the cons? none

Review:

I first purchased these seeds about ten years ago. I had just moved, gotten married and was starting my "pottage garden" near downtown Chicago. I was looking for versatile basics. The Rampicante was described as a great summer AND winter squash. It fit the bill. I started 5-6 seeds indoors in Feb. By late may, I had three very strong plants. I planted them in a claw foot bathtub in my back yard and added a few Hopi Blue Corn and Scarlet Runner Bean seeds to the tub. It was a very hot summer. Those Rampicantes did NOT stop. The leafs were over 20" in diameter, the mature squash got up to 44" in length and 15lbs and the vines grew about 6" a day until they got about 30' in length I trained them from the garden level up and around the back porch. They got to the second floor. My husband asked me why i planted so many. I told him that was only three plants. My neighbors enjoyed watching this giant beauty. They also enjoyed eating it. I love this & will keep growing it.

I started this squash as a "late" summer squash in August. It's now the end of November and I am still picking the squash even though the temperatures have dropped to the 40's.

What are the pros? Prolific,lovely,tasty,a keeper

What are the cons? None

Review:

Squash borers decimate squash and zuchinni around here, so was anxious to give this a try since it is supposedly resistant. Also, the promise of both summer AND winter squash from the same planting was tempting. Seemed to be too good to be true! Well, planted 5 seeds under grow lights (along with usual yellow squash and black zuchinni). 100% germination with all. Borers destroyed the yellow squash & black zuchinni, and ignored the Rampicante squash. From 5 plants fed my household, my mom, and one neighbor family summer squash from early to late season. So productive I let many (like 25) grow to maturity; unlike regular squash, the big ones don't go to waste! Now are eating the cured mature squash - taste like the best butternut squash I've ever eaten. At the size of these babies, and the fact that more are still maturing on the vine, it will be interesting to see how long they will store before starting to go bad. However long, best value from any 5 plants ever!!!! A keeper!

What are the pros? Fun to grow

What are the cons? Long vines, heavy fruit

Review:

This was my first year growing. Very fun to watch it grow. I chose to put it on a trellis (hoop of 4x16 cattle panel). Worked well, but the heavy fruit did break off the vine if not supported by the trellis. The very young squash under 12 inches was very good sauteed. Still wait to harvest the mature squash as winter squash. Lots of yield so I'm looking for ways to preserve.

What are the pros? Can take the heat

What are the cons? Attracts squash bugs

Review:

We have grown this squash for five years and it has never disappointed. It can take the heat of an Arizona summer and keep going. Ours always seem to explode with squash towards the end of August and all through September. Make room... the vines will take over your garden. Also, be diligent, looking almost daily for squash bugs as they love these squash too. The best part about these squash is they hold up to all forms of cooking without getting mushy. They have a sweeter, almost buttery taste.
