(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? Strong plant, tasty fruit

What are the cons? Big! Needs very tall support

Review:

This is about the only squash that we can grow here. We've tried multitudes of others, summer and winter squash. They all start out as robust and healthy plants, and then die a slow death making it almost impossible to harvest from them. The culprit... Squash Bugs !!! They are just about the only bug I can't stand because there seems to be no way to keep them off my plants, and we've tried everything. The Zucchino Rampicante Squash is the only one that can hold up against the squash bugs in our experience. Not only do they hold up, but they continue to produce very tasty squash that our whole family loves!

What are the pros? Cool Shape (@),

What are the cons? low yield as a winter squash

Review:

Final shape even cooler than the picture (not far from @) for most i picked. The tale would go all the way around the bulb I grew and sold these as winter squash. My employees mixed the in with the butternut where customers would pick them off the top of the bin take a picture then put them back and buy stand butternut squash.

What are the pros? Unbelievable Value

What are the cons? None

Review:

To update - I cured and stored 25 of the huge matured squash (after eating and sharing umpteen of the immature zuchinni-style young ones at 12-15"). It is now February and have had only one spoil - I think it was bruised when I harvested it. Have 5 left, all good and firm and still taste fine. Have used in recipes for winter squash pie, soups, casseroles, steamed - anything I would have used regular (for me, difficult to grow and store) winter squash. Best value ever - from 5 seeds an unbelievable amount of food over many months - enough for me, my family and the neighbor family. Needs/takes a considerable amount of room (I used a 5 x 12 bed covered by 5 sets of 8' double arches, and the planting escaped that area. Cleanup will require long sleeves and heavy gloves due to prickles. Harvesting of the mature squash required tree loppers to cut thru the stem, but I think that explains why the squash borers had no impact on these beauties. Really helped the food budget.

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.
