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? 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.

What are the pros? Easy to grow

What are the cons? Tastes different from zucchini

Review:

3 ways to use: After blossom falls off but squash is still green and tender (12 inches or so), great breaded and fried either whole, or simply cut in half. Also delicious sauteed lightly, then mixed with baby eggplant and cooked in tomato sauce. When about 2 or 3 feet, but still green, quarter and grill the neck. The neck is ideal for processing into zucchini soup, bread, cake, etc. No need to peel or seed as skin is soft and the neck is seedless. Once the squash turns pale yellow and is about 2 inches thick at the neck, leave it go on the plant. When the skin turns tan in late summer or fall, cut the squash off the vine, being careful not to bruise the skin or bend the neck. After curing in the sun or in a dry, warm location indoors, for a few weeks, the squash should have creamy, orange flesh, perfect for making gnocchi or butternut squash soup.

What are the pros? Easy, sweet and juicy

What are the cons? different taste from zucchini

Review:

I have always had trouble growing zucchini due to bugs. This variety has excellent resistance to vine borers and mildew, but only moderate resistance to cucumber beetles. I personally love it fried or grilled, but my parents still prefer the softer texture of Cocozelle (common dark-green zucchini). Taste is subjective. People who like firm, sweet squash loved it, but people who are used to mushy stir-fried zucchini were disappointed. The best thing about this variety is that you get a long harvest period from just one or two plants, and you don't have to protect the plants from vine borers, so you can let them climb in neglected garden spaces.
