52 days. The famous Italian/ Roman ribbed zucchini. The distinctive, long fruits are 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 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.

Review:

This squash was incredibly productive in my garden. I used diatomaceous earth at the plants base during June, and did not have any vine borer problems. The plant was very large for a bush squash, required some pruning because it took up the space of at least 3 standard zucchini bushes.It produced more squash than any C. Pepo type zucchini I have ever grown. It has survived on very little water, due to drought this year. I will definitely grow this squash again.

Review:

This is an amazing variety after the generic "black beauty" I've been used to growing. As usual with my zucchini, I missed a squash for a couple days or over the weekend and found one nearly 2 feet long. I figured it would have tough seeds I'd have to scrape out of the center. To my surprise, it was still tender all the way through! Even the skin didn't seem to have toughened up at all. I'll be growing this every year now.

What are the pros? Tasty

What are the cons? Stickly, fuzzy exterior

Review:

I am not a fan of grocery store zucchini, which seems too soft and tasteless. This was a wet spring for us, and my first batch of seeds failed to sprout. But I have 2 plants doing well in the garden, even now that we have had no rain for 3 weeks. They were huge. Note: something ate the tops and left the fruit. I hope they survive. But in the meantime, I picked 6 small fruits and one huge, partially eaten one I found after the topping. These are so good I have literally rinsed them off and eaten them cut like thick potato chips, uncooked. The flesh is firm enough to grill or broil, but still was easy to grate with a microplaner into a sauce. I recommend a hard outer scrubbing if you want to eat them uncooked because they felt like they had soft spines. I thought I had caught a splinter when I popped one off the vine. This is not a good year for the insects, so I cannot comment on insect or disease-resistance. But even dusted with deer scram, they got eaten.
