Review:

Our family has always grown a variety of these squash. We called them cucuzzas. If they get too big you can peel and chop them and cook in a stew with tomatoes onions and garlic and a little Italian seasoning. Delicious. Another way is to bake them with ground beef stuffing. One vine covered the entire trellis over our 12' x 20' patio and we probably picked about 30 squash from it that year. Sadly we have moved and I have no place to plant them now.

Review:

Grew this for the first time. And will grow again. Very productive. And tasty. Very long vine. Longer than any other vine I have ever grown. Doesn't stop traveling. Easy to miss them until they are too big. We picked at 10 inches for eating raw in salads and up to 2 ft for cooking.

Review:

Living in the sub tropics we face a variety of pests and diseases. These plants appear to be resistant to almost everything. As one of the other reviewers stated they are best eaten young. However, if they do get too large one can shred them and use them as a replacement for zucchini in bread or even fritters. It has a mild taste and does freeze well when blanched lightly.
