52 days. The famous Italian/Roman ribbed zucchini. The distinctive, long fruit is ribbed; medium green-striped skin; rich and very flavorful. The cut slices are lightly scalloped. It is also popular to fry this squash whole, when it is small with the flower still attached.

What are the cons? Can get tough

Review:

I'm so glad to find these: I missed them from living in Rome and buying them in the open market up the street... Fabulous with just some oil, garlic and parsley and mint.

Review:

Ive grown this squash for four years now- we dryfarm in a river region. germinated well indoors last year-& also planted direct seed, but that did not do as well, but enriched soil placed with seed @ planting- and I think it caused the plant to go into production too soon- the texture of this squash is excellent for roasting & freezing - excellent flavor. Not as watery as other varieties. (black beauty) Can’t live without it

What are the pros? Insane production

What are the cons? Late pests

Review:

We were up to our eyeballs in zucchini this year - just from 4 plants. An excellent producer that ultimately succumbed to pests but not before delivering scores of tasty squash, some of which grew to over 12" before we spotted them beneath the leaves. Our best plant sprawled all over - the main stem was 2.5" in diameter and didn't slow down. Will grow again.

My favorite summer squash
Easy to Grow 5.0
EarlyMaturity 5.0
 

What are the pros? Easy to grow in cooler areas

What are the cons? None

Review:

I grew this in zone 3 and put out the whole package of seed over a new garden that used to be a goat and sheep winter paddock. The plants were robust in my cooler season. Although they have a bush habit, the bushes spread out to cover an area 6 x 6 feet. I planted these on May 20th, when the weather warmed up. But June gave us a chill and temperatures dropped to just above freezing a few nights. The squash plants soldiered on and we had baby zucchini beginning the third week of July. Our nights often dip down to 40F but this summer squash doesn't skip a beat. I also planted patty pan squash, yellow zucchini, and black beauty zucchini at the same time. It's now the first week of September and we have yet to harvest either the patty pan, the yellow zucchini, or the Black Beauty. Thi squash is sweet and tender even up to torpedo size. I've grilled the 12 inch squash, made zucchini bites from the larger squash and sauteed the baby squash. I'll definitely grow this again.

What are the pros? Giant but tender and prolific

What are the cons? Takes up a lot of space

Review:

I started my first square foot garden bed toss year (2018) because I finally had my own land and garden space. I had some old costata seeds from 2016 left so I planted them. I very quickly realized that despite my square foot spacing, these plants had their own mission.... To take over as many square feet as possible! All my costata seeds germinated rapidly (despite being 2 years old) and took over 4 square feet each plant. Every 3 days I have another giant zucchini to pick and despite the size, the flavor is wondeful and tender. I plan to grow these every year now.
