Seed of the Month: Climbing Italian Summer Squash 'Trombetta di Albenga'


This wonderful Italian heirloom summer squash is a vigorous climbing vine,
producing many 12 to 15-inch, lime-green fruits with a curvaceous trumpet
shape and a delicate mild taste with a hint of nutty artichoke flavor.

Trombetta's flesh is seedless and firm and doesn't get watery or mushy like
regular zucchini. The rambling plants will soon cover a trellis, fence or stakes
with graceful fruits that hang like jade ornaments cloaked in a lush canopy of
big, heart-shaped leaves.
