A favorite! (C. moschata) 70 days. The famous Italian heirloom vining zucchini and pumpkin; long slender 15-inch fruits have a flat bulb at the bottom. They are one of the best eating summer squash: very tender, mild and sweet tasting. The flavor is superb! This squash is also great as winter squash. The Italians use it for stuffing in gnocchi and ravioli; the flesh is rich and flavorful, great for baking and pies! The vines produce good yields of this great all-purpose squash. The mature fruit grow very long. This one is in very high demand at specialty markets.

What are the pros? Hearty, no SVB problems

What are the cons? Sprawling, mediocre flavor

Review:

Everyone should try this at least once. I've grown it several years. It always takes over and ends up climbing along our fence. The squash get huge very quickly. It did fine all summer in the southern heat when all other summer varieties died off from borers and powdery mildew. We weren't impressed with the flavor. It was very mild. As a summer squash, it was not much better than a grocery store variety. It also lacked the sweetness and richness of a good winter squash when matured. Overall, very hearty and productive, but it requires tons of room and trellising for somewhat bland flavor. It is very firm and keeps well.

What are the pros? Versatile, high yield

What are the cons? none

Review:

Tastes like potato chips when pan-fried with salt and pepper! These don't get quite a soft and squishy as zucchini when cooked. These are exciting for kids to grow, and head turners!. I can't comment on the flavor of the smaller squash, because we also grew zucchini, and I was planning to save these for storage squash. HOWEVER, full-sized green squash of this variety are still very versatile. I used them in zucchini breads/cakes, in soup (no one ever noticed), they make great squash noodles, but what makes them versatile is that the large green ones still keep for quite a long time after harvest. I harvested the large green ones at least 2 months ago and kept them with the mature squash and am just now (Dec 29) using the last green one, and it was only just beginning to lose firmness. Once cut into, the remainder of the squash keeps well in the fridge--long enough to use it all up. We haven't tried the mature squash which store longer yet, since I am using up the green ones first.

What are the pros? productive, pretty, vigorous

What are the cons? large fruits break easily

Review:

This squash is the gift that keeps on giving. We ate it young, we ate it old, we gave it to friends and neighbors, we begged them to take more, we fed it to our ducks, we used it for holiday decorations, AND we still managed to put by enough winter squash that we feel confident we shall weather any apocalyptic event with full bellies no problem. This squash is wonderful picked young (under 12 inches long), sliced, fried in butter, and sprinkled with Parmesan. Good grilled, too. Left to mature on the vine, this squash will harden and turn tan. These are great cubed and roasted. Three months post-harvest and we've had few issues with storage, beyond their size. Leave a good hunk of vine on the necks when harvesting. Be careful with large fruits as they will break under their own weight when you pick them up. A vigorous producer that shrugs off pests, but give it a lot of room. Like a good 30 feet or more. And be prepared to be the friendly neighborhood Zucchini Claus - no joke.

What are the pros? Taste and prolific producer

What are the cons? None

Review:

These are wonderful squash! Vine borers did not bother them at all. Prolific producers even thought they got hit with powdery mildew early due to our especially humid summer last year. These never made it to become the winter squash because we ate them all!!! Will definitely grow these every year.
