Excellent. I started 6 plants. It is way too early for a harvest here in Seattle.
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.
This has been a fun experiment with a new variety of squash. The biggest appeal is that it is bug resistant. It tastes great and is a conversation item in the garden.
