(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 called BCHS looking for a vining summer squash. This is the one they recommended. It is both, a summer squash and a winter squash. The taste is like a mild zucchini, the seeds are only at one end, and it is easy to grow. I recommend a strong trellis if you want long, straight squash. If you don't care if they are coiled and crooked, let the plant sprawl. Great raw, steamed, saut?ed, fried, etc.. Don't need all of the two-foot in length squash? Just cut off what you need and leave the rest on the counter for a while. Keep it upright so the goo doesn't get everywhere, it it will keep just fine. I am really loving this squash as it has exceeded my expectations. Also easy to blanche and freeze. Since this is the first year growing, I have not had time to let the squash turn into a winter squash but I can't imagine it won't perform as expected. This a a great variety if you are looking to put up frozen "summer" squash for winter meals. Highly recommend.

Review:

This is the best squash ever!! Great for beginners and pros alike. Super easy to grow and VERY prolific. Just a warning- these will grow multiple 10' vines in every direction. We've grown them on the ground and on a trellis, they do great either way. They have an excellent taste and can be used in all sorts of recipes. You don't even need to peel them before preparing them, as long as you pick them before they get too big, as the peel is really tender. Plus. all the seeds are concentrated to the bottom of the squash, so you don't have to worry about too many seeds. We just slice the long part up and use it just like that. The plants are so prolific that we always have tons to give away - and friends always get a kick out of their funny shape. We just love this squash so much! Very highly recommended!!!

Review:

Grew this on an very strong arbor. The squash grew up one side, across the top, and down the other side--16-20 foot vines. The kids thought the 3 foot long hanging squash were very cool. If you don't have a tall, strong trellis, give them at least 20 feet to sprawl. Picked small, about 8-12 inches and while still green, these have a better flavor than most zucchini. Once they start to turn white, they become very bland and stringy. But just wait...when the skin turns tan and is hard, harvest and use like a winter squash. They taste like butternut, and look like an elongated butternut squash. Each fruit is about 5-7 pounds. Cut off the bulb and just cook the neck. They stored about 5 months. I will grow again, Would recommend withholding water for the last 3 weeks or so, before harvest. A more dry squash would probably store longer.

What are the pros? Easy to grow, NO SQUASH BUGS

What are the cons? none

Review:

Last year my Golden Egg squash was overrun with squash bugs. So was my crookneck. It was a daily battle which I ended up losing. After some research, I found this variety and planted them in a raised bed with an 8' trellis. They are already starting to bloom and it's only early June, and the vines are getting huge - one is already to the top of the trellis. Best of all - NOT ONE SQUASH BUG! I live in the country, so there are bugs everywhere. Not one found on this variety so far.

Review:

First time I grow this zucchini and I had a 100% germination rate. The plant is heat tolerant, produce hi yields and has a very good taste. Once pollinated the zucchini grow so fast it is almost unbelievable. This is a great variety of zucchini.
