Round French Zucchini - Bush or vine? Anyone knows?

roswell_organicApril 22, 2010

I got some seed to try from a good friend, tried google to see if I can figure out if it is a bush type or vine before I plant it.

Found great reviews of the plant on google, but no description of the type - bush or vine.

Anyone has grown it?

Thanks in advance for your help,

Does your cultivar have a name? One of the more popular is Round of Nice/ Tonda di Nizza which is a large bush. It will sprawl as much as 6 feet under good conditions.

Most all Summer Squash are Bush type. Winter Squash are mostly vining. The few summer vine exceptions that I can think of off the top of my head are listed below.

Zucchetta rampicante 'Tromboncino'
This is the vining zuchini. As far as I know there are no vining yellow squash, pattypan squash or round zuchini. They are all Bush.

There are also the cucuzzi (, which are an edible gourd. They are light green, elongated and are eaten like zuchini.

Also the tatume ( are round light green summer squash, that grow on a vine.

Territorial seeds has a vining zuke called Black Hawk.

Hope that helps!
