Trombocino Rampicante -- a well kept secret??
We just ate our first ever Trombocino Rampicante squash! I saw some photos of this squash last year (2009) and did some research - got seeds and planted for 2010. My all time favorite summer squash was yellow crookneck followed closely by white patty pan. I will probably never grow either again. The flavor of Trombocino Rampicante when picked in the summer squash stage is so rich and full - DH and I are addicted! I've pulled out the seeds to plant another few plants just to have enough to freeze for winter use.
Best part is that it can also be left to mature and will behave and taste like butternut winter squash. AND --- The evil squash vine borer won't bother this plant - it is c. moschata.
