(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? Love everything about it!

What are the cons? None

Review:

I love this versatile squash! 1) This is crazy prolific 2) Plant grows huge, and super fast. 3) Versatile, eat as Zucchini type squash or let mature (which I'm letting do right now) and use as winter squash. 4) Hardy resisted most of this seasons diseases and pests. 5) just one fruit is about 2-3 times the size of normal zucchini but still tender/ not seeds. (Seeds only form in the bulbous end like a butternut) In fact when when maturing (at least the one I'm saving) looks like a super long neck butternut squash! 6) crazy tasty! Will become a staple in my garden. Highly Recommend

What are the pros? tasty, few seeds, prolific

What are the cons? requires a lot of space

Review:

Can't say enough about this highly-productive, VERY LARGE plant! I planted three, and it nearly took over my garden. It looks beautiful climbing up my 8' trellis, and I love seeing the bright orange flowers every morning. The plant has been hugely prolific for us, and even here in drought-stricken Northern California, the leaves haven't wilted and the plant keeps producing. The plants are so prolific that I've had to distribute to friends, neighbors, passersby... some fruit have grown to 3' long and remain slender and straight if hanging from a trellis, and even these fruits aren't woody, with very firm flesh and few seeds. Some of the fruit I missed have grown to 3' long and about 5" in diameter; I let these sit for a while, and when cut into them saw that the flesh had turned orange. Looking forward to trying these out as winter squash later this season. The plants have also resisted powdery mildew much longer than the other winter/summer squash in my garden.

What are the pros? Fast growth

What are the cons? Bland flavor

Review:

Zone 9 here with drought and extreme heat. This squash needs a lot of water and wilts every day. The heat might end up being the reason for my finding this squash bland and stringy. I've tried it as a summer squash and as a winter squash and it just doesn't work for me. I imagine it's blandness would lend well to any seasoning but I don't think I will plant it again. On the plus side squash bugs don't bother it.

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.
