Caserta Squash

60 days. All America Selections winner in 1949. Here's an early bush cocozelle type, popular in Italy where they favor a rich, full-flavored zucchini. Fruits slightly club-shaped with mottled striping in olive-green and darker green. Can reach a fairly large size and still be quite tender and delicious as a summer squash.

What are the pros? Prolific and tasty

What are the cons? none

Review:

Caserta did exceptionally well in a large pot on my sunny patio. I sowed the seeds right in the pot to replace the zucchini in the garden that had mildew. Seems like it started fruiting fairly young and continued to produce for a long time. Delicious raw or steamed. This squash was yummy. I will add this to my must grow list.

What are the pros? taste, color

Review:

Not sure why but the first several fruits rotted on the vine when they were still small. After a couple of weeks they grew normally. Nice firmness and taste. Interesting color but no yellow stripes as on this websites picture.

What are the cons? Does not look like picture

Review:

This is the first of many varieties in my garden to produce in Michigan. It does not look like the pic but there are many ones on one plant. Tonight we had my first one raw in a salad and it was incredibly delicious. Cannot wait to try them grilled..

Review:

I really enjoyed growing this one. It was early and a great producer. I really loved the taste and it stayed tender as well. I will be growing this one next year. On a side not they all got powdery mildew make sure you living them plenty of breathing room, mine were overcrowded.

What are the pros? Pretty leaves Open bush habit

What are the cons? None

Review:

I ordered some costata zucchini seeds in 2009 but the fruit is not ribbed like it should be. What I get looks like the caseta. I don't care though as this squash is wonderful. The fruit are easy to find and prolific enough for my tastes. This year it is earlier than my yellow straight neck or yellow patty pan but tastier than both.
