80 days. Italian heirloom - Climbing/vining summer squash

Light green fruits grow long, curving to a bell at one end. Vining plants can be grown on a trellis. Harvest at 8-10 in. long when the flavor is fine and sweet.

Vigorous moschata plants can bear all season in areas where insects are a problem for other summer squash. If left to mature, skin will ripen to tan like a butternut squash.

Tromboncino, also called zucchetta, is more tolerant to some common summer squash pests, including squash vine borer, squash bugs and powdery mildew, compared to the more common summer squash cultivars.


Contains 15 heirloom seeds
