Common in northeastern Italy, and nearly the only variety seen in the Venetian shops and markets. The name means “wrinkled of Friuli,” but the light yellow fruit is beyond wrinkled, being fantastically warted even when very young. Rich and full flavored, as Italian varieties usually are.

What are the pros? Excellent taste

What are the cons? Really huge bushes!!

Review:

The flavor is just great fried, grilled or breaded or stewed for us. Holds shape well when cooked, this one runs neck to neck as a fav to the old fashioned watry summer squash. Not quite as quick to start sizing up seeds in the fruits, and a tad bit drier than yellow crook necks. We pick our summer squashes small, though some can "get away" on you from time to time as this is a REALLY large bush, about 5 feet side to side and almost that tall for us. No diseases noted, vigorous growth and yes, itchy leaves but worth the space and itchiness. Ours did not climb or even ramble as another reviewer said theirs did, nor were the squash stringy, ours were meltingly tender and tasty/ Did well in Texas heat, ours got a bit of shade late afternoons, and plenty of water. Our leaves looked as big as those elephant ear plants!! Will grow again and again. About as productive as the yellow crooknecks ( the old fashioned very warty ones that we also grow). The blossoms are quite large, too.

What are the pros? Disease resistance, flavor

What are the cons? Takes up a lot of space

Review:

This is an end-of-season update on my previous review. It's mid-September, and all my other summer squash and zucchini plants stopped producing weeks ago and are dead, mostly from mildew. Rugosa Friulana is still going strong and producing tasty squash. Some of the leaves are mildewed, but enough are still healthy and green to support squash. I'm very impressed with this variety's disease resistance. It does sprawl more than the typical summer squash, but worth the space since it's still producing 2-3 squash every 2-3 days.

What are the pros? Taste, production

What are the cons? Na

Review:

These are rich and full flavored. They are amazing fried as their texture holds batter well and they have a lower water content than zucchini or summer squash. A great producer! We have had many many squash in the horrendous heat we have had this season. The plants are very very large (spanning over 5 feet) so make the room and grow these. We will not be ordering any other varieties but this as our regular now. Amazing!!!

What are the pros? Flavorful, disease-resistant

What are the cons? Takes up a lot of garden space

Review:

The flavor is very good. This variety is not consistent in appearance. I let two plants grow. The squash from both are pale green (not yellow); one has the warty, wrinkly look of the catalog photo, and the other is smooth-skinned. I'm delighted with their disease resistance. My Rugosa Friulana plants show no cucumber beetle damage and no bacterial wilt disease, whereas other nearby squash plants have been chewed on by beetles and are showing wilt problems. These are a bush type of squash, but are big plants that take up a lot of garden space for the amount of squash they produce - 4 feet or so across as of the end of July and still expanding. I will grow them again, but next year will put them in a different location where they have more room and won't crowd other plants.

What are the pros? Excellent flavor and texture

What are the cons? A bit stingy

Review:

Good climbing habit. Produced early. Fruit production was consistent but not abundant. Excellent texture (firm) and very good flavor. Did not appreciate our late Summer heat. Relatively pest free.
