A favorite! (C. moschata) 70 days. The famous Italian heirloom vining zucchini and pumpkin; long slender 15-inch fruit has a flat bulb at the bottom. It is 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 grows very long. This one is in very high demand at specialty markets.

What are the pros? Great flavor and texture!

What are the cons? Prickly vine; wear gloves.

Review:

I've grown this squash for years as zucchetta rampicante or tromboncino, with all seeds producing essentially the same squash. I find its taste and texture superior to other summer squash: tender but firm, never watery, with a mild, bright flavor with a hint of asparagus. The seedless neck remains tender even when 8-9 inches around. The young fruit is fragile so I prefer to harvest at 16-18 inches or more. They will turn into winter squash if left on the vine and will keep for months if cured properly. They will climb trellises, fences, drain pipes, etc but prefer to ramble on the ground, rooting as they go. You can try to corral them but it's best to give them room, tho they're fine sharing space and will happily crawl over other squash and follow pole beans, cukes, and other vine crops up teepees or trellises. Some early pollination problems, but they always hit their stride. Good production.

Review:

I have grown this for 2 years now. I put them up a trellis we built - A frame style with chicken wire. They seem a little slow to get started, but the product is GREAT! We love this veggie, and love it far more than standard zukes. We also love it as a winter squash. I am done with standard zukes. Squash bugs were on the plants but I never saw damage.

What are the pros? Vigorous, productive, tough

What are the cons? Tastes different

Review:

After 3 years, I have found that this squash resists vine borers and powdery mildew, but is still prone to cucumber beetles. Firm, mild, juicy flesh; great for grilling at medium size, or breading and frying when small. Mature squash have creamy, golden flesh, like a mild butternut--perfect for gnocchi. Grow this on the biggest trellis you can find. The only issue was that the firm, seedless flesh of the immature summer squash was too different from regular zucchini for some of my family, although friends who don't like the stringy, mucilaginous texture of zucchini loved this variety grilled.

What are the pros? Squash bugs hate them.

Review:

This is a great replacement for zucchini. We have had problems with squash bugs in the past where the zucchini have been devastated. Squash bugs do not like this Squash! It's easy to grow, tastes great, and prolific. Another bonus is it makes a great winter squash as well as a nice summer squash. Be warned, they grow to be enormous. Storage as winter squash can be a problem. We have some that are over 3 feet long. The seeds grow in the bottom bulbous part of fruit leaving the long neck full of firm orange /yellow flesh. We grow these on a arched trellis made of hog fence (they need a sturdy trellis). We enjoy the flavor as both types of squash. It makes a great ratatouille.
