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? 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.

Not Immune to Squash Borers

What are the pros? Grow Quickly

What are the cons? Not immune to Squash Borers

Review:

I wish I could say I've had the same experience as others have with Squash borers. Unfortunately, each of my Tatume plants has been devastated by them. Unlike other Squash plants that have been assailed by squash borers Tatume's manage to live through the infestation but only barely and do not produce any squash as a result. One of my plants actually managed to produce a squash but the stem was turning brown so I picked the squash and noticed that a borer actually entered the squash through the stem.

Review:

This is a uniquely wonderful summer squash, a vine with a super tasty fruit. I started summer squashes late and all got destroyed by borers after giving one or two fruits except this one, which grew like mad and produced heavily. It's now September and the thing keeps producing. The fruit itself is subtly sweet, better flavored than all the varieties that got wrecked by the borers, including the cocozella. If I were a veggiephile I'd marry it.

Review:

My one plant in 2015 was so productive I ran out of friends to give it to. It made female flowers as long as I kept it picked, but once in a while the female flower production slowed down and flowers were suddenly mostly male till I picked the hidden fruit that had grown beyond harvest size. Within a few days it reverted to female flowers again. I grew it near the garden entrance, having failed to read the fine print about its having a vining habit, but in the future it will get its own universe where it can grow up the fence. The taste is as described, complex and much better than any zucchini. The texture is interesting, too, never mushy, stays firm - and the seeds in older ones the size of a cantalope have an interesting chewy mouthfeel that we loved. By late fall a dozen or more got too big to cook as summer squash so I let them fill out and harden. These turned bright orange and sat outside all winter, and now in July a year later still look like October pumpkins, but weightless.
