Great! I haven't planted this year's Tromboncino, but after last year's zucchini harvest of 3 different varieties, we decided this year to plant ONLY tromboncino because they were absolutely the best tasting even when giant, and were easier to see to harvest and didn't get stuck and wet and moldy under the leaves.
Grows fast and produces all season. Its taste is similar to zucchini. I use it to make zucchini cake and bread. They will grow in lengths over 24" if you let it. Pick it when it reaches about 10 to 12 inches for best flavor and tenderness.
Every year we like to add a different variety of plants to grow along with our standard crops. Although I noticed that this zuccheta was a pretty vigorous grower I ignored it for a long time because it was “weirder“ than my yellow and zucchini squash. It took a couple of attempts cooking it, mixing it in with the other summer squash before I noticed its unique creamy texture. I’m surprised more people are not aware of this awesome tasting squash. I will definitely be growing it again next year.
Been growing this squash for years. You can use it as summer squash or let them grow huge and use them as fall decoration and winter squash. I also like them because they do not succumb to the insects as easily as other squash plants. You must have a strong fence or trellis and lots of room....
