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.

With no rain all summer and triple digit heat this squash performed admirably. We gave it supplemental water since we had no rain.

Review:

Some reviewers said they didn't like these as winter squash, but I really liked them that way. I was looking for a large squash that I could leave on the vine as long as possible. This is a terrible area for vegetable gardening because our seasons are so short. Cold winter, short spring, very hot summer, short fall. The winter months can be fairly temperate, but it can be in the 80s one day and the teens the next. I got squash from both the spring and fall gardens. However the spring plants simply survived the summer and then produced in the fall. Today I am going to cut up the last of the harvest and throw them in the freezer. I'll cook them in the oven and eat with butter, salt and pepper. Yum!

Review:

I don't like zucchini but for some reason I grow it every year. Fortunately this year I grew a regular zucchini and this one. I am so glad I did as I will have this going year-round until I find something better, which I can't imagine happening. It is prolific. One of the vines is probably close to 20 feet long. I am going to try and trellis it next time and maybe snip the end to keep it managed. I tried one as a winter squash but didn't care for the taste. But sliced up in soup when it's green, it's unbeatable. My favorite new seed over the past couple of years. The only issue I had was the blossom end with a bit distorted. I couldn't tell if it was a slight touch of blossom end rot or if it was torn up a little bit by the mulch it was growing on. No bother; I snapped off the end and ate the rest.

What are the pros? Versatile, heavy yeilding

What are the cons? Needs lots of space

Review:

In a year where I had a late start, health issues and generally neglected my plants, these have been amazing! I had 40 foot vines, just harvested over a half dozen 38 inch squash and nearly 2 dozen under 15 inches from just four vines, from the four seeds I put in, to see what would happen. We had record setting weird weather, unseasonably wet, Unseasonably hot, and it performed so well, I'm trying all kinds of recipes and giving away pounds of squash. Can't wait to try this again next year. We lost so many plants to powdery mildew and these seem unaffected by this. I've been raving and converting people in various gardening groups all over the east coast. Great cooked, or raw, steamed, sauteed, baked, cooked with, pickled, and even baked into blue ribbon cakes.

Review:

This squash grew moderately well for me. Not as well as I would have thought reading other reviews, but I did get many squash of 4 plants. This plant was slow to start and seemed to struggle with the hot dry heat of mid summer (high desert southern Utah) and grew slowly. It seemed to perk up around early to mid august after a good monsoon season. The squash bugs also really like this plant and i had to keep on top of them - but they were stressed by sun/heat and they took a hit. It also did not really want to take to a trellis and was not as prolific as others noted regarding sprawling growth habit. I will grow this again though as I think I can do better caring for the plant and it is so versatile: the squash is delicious young and unlike most other summer squash it can be stored. It also stores pretty well green. Tips for other desert growers - some shade and maybe more water - grow it like summer squash, not winter squash.
