What are the pros? Easy to grow
What are the cons? None
Grew these in a big container and they took off. Usually I have trouble with zucchini because they always seem to get the powdery mildew..these seem to be a bit resistant to it. There are quite a few ripening on the vines. Cannot wait to try them!

What are the pros? Great taste strong plant
Delicious large prolific squash. Every other squash taken out by vine borers but this one is only lightly touched. I grew them on a trellis, looks super cool. Suggest growing on the ground if you have room, rooting along the vine would virtually eliminate squash vine borer loss. Delicious fruit. They did get hit by pickle worms a couple times. Will probably be my only summer squash next year.

What are the pros? Great flavor and texture!
What are the cons? Prickly vine; wear gloves.
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.

What are the pros? Delicious
What are the cons? ?
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.
