I've grown this squash from Pinetree for years. It is a related to butternuts, so it resists borers. It doesn't turn to mush when sauteed or pickled. Give it plenty of room to spread or climb and enjoy. Passable as a winter squash. Would love to see it crossed with a butternut squash.
All seeds grew to beautiful vines, but only produced 2 large squash. Had lots of blossoms that did not result in squash. Perhaps planted too late in season (Early August)? Will try planting earlier. Good news is that they were not damaged by squash bugs that killed my other zucchini!
after getting these seeds to grow they have far exceeded my expectations. i put them in several locations around property believe it or not did the best in worst garden soil. the quality is fantastic. the long necks are perfect for spiralizing or sliced lengthwise and used for pasta. salt after cutting let sit 30min rinse ... voila pasta, stir fry, plain ole fried squash or however you can think to use them. the bulb part sliced in half can be stuffed. pasta can be frozen with no loss of integrity. let them stay on vine until outside is creamy colored and now you have winter squash with flavor that very much like that of a butternut squash. AND the dreaded squash worm does not bother them. every leaf puts down a root system where it touches soil so just cut that bad part out, doesn't even slow plant down. supposed to store for 3 to 4 months as winter squash. give plenty of room to wander it goes everywhere.
This is now my go-to zucchini. The plant is a beautiful big, vigorous, climber. The zucs have a firm slightly yellow, firm flesh that sautés up nicely. Don’t let it get too big; pick when the neck gets just over an inch thick.
This Zucchetta Tromboncino squash grows very long vines and produces a lot of squash that are delicious when small, at which stage they have a solid core and are kind of like a yellow zucchini-type squash, but then they get really big really fast (I mean like 3 feet long) and keep well, at least a month or two in my basement stairwell, and I look like an extremely elongated butternut squash and taste somewhere in between that and a yellow squash. Really interesting squash to grow, very easy and vigorous but the vines get really long so you need plenty of space and/or trellises.
