Zucchetta Trombolina Zucchini

60-80 days. Cucurbita moschata. Known as a tromboncino type for its resemblance to a trombone, this quirky pale green heirloom is imported from Italy. Trombolina is borne on vines that scramble to 8' long or more. We recommend vertical trellising and a wide berth: please avoid crowding plants. When supported, the Squash can straighten out to a length of 3 feet! Optimum picking size, however, is 12" to 15". Untrained Trombolina vines will produce fruit resembling balloon animals. This Squash is virtually seedless and has an unusually firm texture which stands up well to cooking. (OP.)

A reliable warm weather producer, Zucchini should be sown as transplants 3 to 4 weeks before the last frost date. Or it is best direct-sown when the soil is above 50°F. Thin skinned, they store poorly, so harvest right before use. Keep picking to ensure continued production. Avoid baseball bats~enjoy them small and sweet in ratatouille, stuffed and baked, grilled or sautéed with pasta. Bee friendly. Deer resistant.

Average seed life: 2 years.
