Best all-round squash/zuchinni or substitute??
Where I live it very difficult to grow regular summer squash and zuchinni. The summer humidity and the pickle worms do them in.
I am always looking for good substitutes, and because I have a small garden I'm looking for something very versitile.
I have read about various gourds (cucuzzi, edible bottle gourds) being used like squash; chayotes; and even green papayas.
I have been growing trombocini squash but this year they taste watery and mealy for some reason.
I'm looking for something with nice buttery texture and good flavor, but can stand up to humid subtropical climate.
