Tromboncino Climbing Summer Squash

25 Seeds

$ 3.99

(Cucurbita moschata) An interesting dual-purpose heirloom squash grown predominantly for use as a summer squash.  Plants produce long, curved necks that, when harvested young contain tender, green interiors that can be used just like zucchini.  Young squash have a mildly sweet flavor, and are delicious whether sautéed, fried, roasted or grilled.  Mature squash have a flavor similar to a butternut, although they are a little less sweet.  We find that the mature squash work best as an accent ingredient, for example in squash risotto, rather than as a standalone dish.  Tromboncino is a great option for gardeners with squash borer issues as the solid stems make them more resistant to sap sucking insects when compared to zucchini and other C. pepo summer squash varieties. 60 days to maturity for summer squash.  90 days for winter squash.  25 seeds per packet.  

CULTURE:  After danger of frost has passed, sow seeds in hills with 4-5 seeds per hill and hills spaced 6ft in all directions.  Germination will occur in 7-14 days.  Once seeds have germinated thin to 3 seedlings per hill.  Trellising plants will produce squash with straighter necks, however they will require more water since they can't put down secondary roots along the stems.
