SQUASH – TROMBONCINO

Cucurbita moschata

Tromboncino, also known as Zucchetto, is a type of squash most often used as a summer squash. This Italian variety is a wonderful diversion from the usual. The light green-to-tan fruit can grow up to 1 meter long & may be harvested anytime, from just a few cms through to its full size. Enjoy the rich flavor steamed, grilled, or sliced raw in your favorite salad. A vining variety that is best trellised for straight fruit. Can pick young and eaten like a zucchini or left to mature as for a squash. Mature fruits, if not trellised, become curled like a trombone.

Plant seeds in hills sowing seeds 10cm apart, 6 to 8 seeds per hill. Cover seed with 12mm of fine soil well firmed down. When new plants are about 10cm tall carefully thin or transplant to 3 healthiest plants per hill.
