Easy to Grow 5.0
EarlyMaturity 4.0
 

What are the pros? disease resistant, prolific

What are the cons? too prolific?

Review:

Holy moly I thought Rampicante meant rampant because that's how they grow! All over the place and SUPER prolific. I germinated 6 seeds, 4 of them made it after transplanting (prob because slugs got them)...took about a month and then went totally crazy. For sure the most prolific thing in my garden. I have harvested probably 25-35 large green zucchini. Turns out Rampicante = climbing, which it does amazingly. I have one vine that's easily 30 feet away from the plant right now in mid-Sept (zone 5B). i'm letting the rest (of which there are probably 20 more) go on to become winter squash. Looking forward to tasting those! The summer squash version are excellent! Especially like to grill em. But awesome in stews and as tempura too. I have butternut and kabocha as well but these vines are on another level health-wise. Super green, vibrant and no powdery mildew as the others are now getting. Highly recommend but beware they may take over your garden! I will probably only plant 2 next year!

Love these

EarlyMaturity 4.0
 

What are the pros? They're just fun!

What are the cons? None

Review:

They're beautiful hanging from an arched catrle panel! Super prolific, mild sweet flavor. Great for soups, stews, breads, sauteed, scrambled in eggs, anything! Grow them on a trellis because they go and go. I haven't let one go to be a winter squash yet but they will be replacing regular zucchini for summer squash next year for sure.

Zucchino Rampicante Squash
Easy to Grow 5.0
EarlyMaturity 4.0
 

What are the pros? Easy to grow

What are the cons? None

Review:

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!

EarlyMaturity 3.5
 

What are the pros? Great taste strong plant

What are the cons? None

Review:

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.
