Zucchino Rampicante Squash

(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? 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.

What are the pros? Flavor, flavor, flavor

What are the cons? Huge vines, squash bugs

Review:

I grew this not realizing just how large the vines were! They absolutely took over my small kitchen garden space. I did trellis, but not tall/long enough. If you can handle that (and checking for the squash bugs which seem to be attracted to this variety,) you will love the taste! I did not grow for use as a summer squash. I use it for my prize holiday pumpkin pies - the texture is so smooth. I did get five LONG squash, every morsel melt-in-your-mouth delicious! Not a large seed cavity, either. Not a storage squash, but in a cold back room, one squash lasted until the end of January (harvested in mid October.) I keep this seed and grow out periodically. One day, perhaps someone will select for shorter vines! It eventually succumbed to powdery mildew.

What are the pros? Versatility, bug resistance

What are the cons? needs a lot of space

Review:

I was attracted to this squash by its rollicking name, and chose to grow it because of its dual-purpose nature – good as a summer squash, good as a winter squash. But the surprise that will keep me growing this squash is its amazing indifference to both squash bugs and vine borers!! I love both summer and winter squashes of all kinds, but haven't grown squash in my garden for the past 3 years due to consistently losing battles with vine borers and squash bugs. Vine borers get into a leaf of rampicante and kill that one leaf, but apparently cannot penetrate into the main vine!!! And, while I saw, and hand-picked off, several squash bugs and eggs early in the summer, I am incredulously seeing no more of them now in the mid-summer. That is wonderful! In addition, this squash is lovely to cook with. It is more durable and meaty than ordinary summer squashes, which normally turn to mush if cooked one second too long. This squash has more substance, and will even stand up to browning!
