Tromboncino Squash

BIG fun! This Italian heirloom has it all. Gorgeous edible flowers! Summer squash! Winter squash! Humorous shapes!

No other plant will make you feel like such a rockstar gardener. Tromboncino, or Zucchetta Rampicante, is, in a word, hilarious. You won’t believe these curvy trombone-shaped fruits. You could easily be satisfied growing them as curiosities, but thankfully they’re also delicious. You have three chances to eat them--as squash blossoms, as a sweet zucchini, OR left on the vine to harden off to eat as a Winter squash. I’ve even had them candied--talk about versatile!

Direct sow in full sun when warm. These big plants can engulf a large area--we recommend growing upwards and giving them something sturdy to climb.
