Climbing Zucchini,Tromboncino, Trombocino, Zucchetta Rampicante, Italian Trombone Squash 'Tromba d'Albenga' (Cucurbita moschata)
Tromboncino Summer Squash (60 days summer squash, 90 days winter squash) Open-pollinated. Also known as zucchini rampicante although, unlike other zucchini, a moschata. Tender, mild, sweet and nutty when harvested as summer squash at 8–12". Delicious steamed, grilled or sliced raw in salad. Italians use it in gnocchi and to stuff ravioli. When the green-tan fruits grow very long, they are best baked as winter squash. As might be inferred from its alias, its vines are rampant and should be trellised. “Out-tastes 95% of the Zuke pack,” declares Garland, ME, grower Relentless.
