Curcubita moschata (60 days summer squash/ 90 days winter squash)
This is a highly unique classic Italian heirloom squash that can be harvested young as a rich, full-flavored summer squash which is much preferred to traditional zucchini by many Italians who call it "zucchini rampicante". Harvested at 8-12" long, it is delicious roasted, grilled, grated raw into salads or stuffed in ravioli. It can also be left to mature as a long keeping winter squash. Related to Butternut squash, Tromboncino has vigorous growing vines that give rise to elongated serpentine fruits that can grow up to 3 feet long. Can be stored and eaten like a winter squash, however its texture is somewhat stringy like a spaghetti squash and not as sweet and even as a Butternut. A real treat to grow and marvel at!
