91% of 100

75 Days. The popular Italian edible gourd. Long, slender fruit is a brilliant, light green color; very tender and delicious with a rich flavor. The Italians eat these steamed, sautéed, or stuffed and baked. Preferred by many to zucchini, this is indeed a gourmet treat. This ancient vegetable was popular in Italy, long before squash was brought here from the Americas. These are not bothered by many pests, and tend to be very easy to grow.
