WANTED: Have Trombone Squash Seed & Plants for Raleigh Swap

Ralph Whisnant(z7b-8 NC)April 20, 2011

I am bringing Trombone Squash (Climbing Zucchini) seeds and plants to our swap on Saturday. If you would like me to reserve a plant or a couple of seeds for you, let me know. One vine will produce dozens of squash that are as good or better than zucchini and/or yellow summer squash, and a few can be left on the vine to grow into long butter-nut like winter squash weighing 15 - 20 pounds. The vines can cover 25 - 30 feet in all directions, so it is not appropriate for small gardens. I am providing a link that describes some other peoples' experience with growing this squash. Cheryl and I love it and eat it year round.

can I buy some Trombone squash seeds from you- or trade for some Seminole squash seeds?

Kate, I have recently harvested almost a dozen mature trombone squash averaging about 15 pounds each from the single vine I planted this year. As usual it took over the whole garden and provided us with many, many small summer squash. I will email you my address and if you will send me a self-address stamped envelope, I will gladly send you as many seed of the just harvested Trombone squash as you would like. (Believe me, one plant is enough.) I am not familiar with your Seminole squash, but would love to try it if you still have a few seed to spare. RalphW
