65 days. A must in Mexican cuisine, and also popular in certain parts of Texas. This old heirloom is picked small and used like zucchini, but these are so much better than standard supermarket zucchini! Round to slightly elongated, flavorful fruits are green in color; vigorous vining plants are fairly resistant to disease.

What are the pros? Best grilling squash

What are the cons? Not prolific on trellis

Review:

This is the best grilling squash I've ever eaten. I grill burgers on a perforated griddle when Tatumes are being grilled. When I pull the burgers, I slide the Tatume slices over to greasy griddle surface and turn the heat up. The slightly charred, 3/8"-1/2" slices are so delicious that they often get eaten in a bun WITHOUT A BURGER. There are never any leftover Tatume slices...ever. They are fantastic as a topping for the burgers as well. They are delicious when prepared the same as any other summer squash too. As far as the plants go, they are hardy. Last year I trellised them on 8' hog panels. I only got 2-3 squash per vine last year. This year, I am trellising AND ground running from the same hills for an honest productivity analysis. I pick them when they are about the same diameter as a large hamburger bun. They hold well on and off the vine...probably better than any other summer squash I've picked as a summer squash. I will continue to grow, and grill, Tatume

What are the pros? Better taste and texture

Review:

I'm gardening in the high desert of New Mexico. The elevation is 5400 feet, the wind can be vicious coming off the mountain and the sun is quite intense. This squash produced wonderfully. It will be in my future gardens.

Outruns the borer
Easy to Grow 5.0
EarlyMaturity 5.0
 

What are the pros? Easy to grow, prolific

What are the cons? Needs lots of cleared ground

Review:

We had great results from this squash. The vine borers did get it- but it grew so fast, and kept putting down roots, that it flourished. We kept harvesting and harvesting, through the two onslaughts of borers we get here. Great flavor. Cute porch pumpkins were enjoyed from mature fruit. Excited to see how it does this year, now that we have chickens that will help us with the bug fight!

NOT squash vine borer resistan
Easy to Grow 2.0
EarlyMaturity 2.0
 

What are the pros? different than most squash

What are the cons? NOT squash vine borer resistan

Review:

I chose this variety because it was supposed to be resistant to the squash vine borer. Well, it's not. I got two small squash out of it because the vine borers destroyed the vines before they could put out many fruit. One of the fruit actually had a grub eating right into it. I've never seen that before. The couple that we ate was ok. Tasted like a non descript mixture of different squashes. I'll be throwing away the rest of my seeds.

Review:

Planted this as a start in the spring and kind of forgot about it. Went back out in end of July to see that it had completely taken over one of my beds and is doing very well and its full of squash! I left them until they were about the size of a small honeydew, not zucchini size, and seeded it, sliced it, and roasted it for about 15 minutes at 425F with olive oil, salt and paprika and ate it all skin included. Its delicious!! My zucchinis didn't do well in the heat so I'll definitely be planting a lot more of these instead.
