(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? 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.

What are the pros? Good early fruits, large plant

What are the cons? bit insipid as winter squash

Review:

Really enjoyed seeing the plants take off and cover the compost heap where I planted to give plenty of nutrients. I figured since pumpkins have done well as volunteers there that this squash would too, and this one did. Two plants covered the heap and would have covered my SUV, too, if the carport hadn't shaded too much. The blossoms were beautiful and the young fruits a bit firm, but tasty summer squash. Some of the winter squash have been rather insipid (more like summer squash flavor) when roasted, and there's little flesh in the seedy bulb end. Overall, though, great to have a squash that copes with mildew and borers and gave me homegrown fruits. Recommend to use for serving with tomatoes, garlic, and onion similar to ratatouille.

What are the pros? taste, prolific,no disease

What are the cons? none

Review:

This is going to be my forever plant, I love it! It is vigorous , prolific, disease resistant and tastes really good. I grew it along the fence, tying it on trellis and it followed the top of the fence, it crawled almost 10m and even tried to climb the house, went to neighbors yard as well, one big healthy plant, it produced female flowers in mid summer and the fruit grew really fast, we picked it young and ate raw and cooked, the taste is mild and crunchy and there are no seeds except in the bottom part, my kids were convinced it's a cucumber. It had no issues with pests except for aphids in the spring but it handled them well, and it managed to stay alive up until the first frost in October even though the weather was chilly.I left one 1.6 m long squash in the basement for winter and for seed, it was very heavy and taller than my 7 year old, I wish I could show you the photo here :) I love this plant!
