Grow this Squash Next Year

We are growing the greatest new squash this year. It’s called Zucchino Rampicante. This one is both a summer and winter squash. You can eat it now like a zucchini or you can let them get big and be a hard skinned winter squash. We obviously haven’t tried it as a winter squash yet, but as a summer squash it tastes a lot like butternut. We’ve had some in soup and it was a nice treat to have that flavor mixed among the others.

As they are growing they are forming these large bulbs at the end like gourds are well over a foot long. I can’t wait to see what they look like and taste like when fully mature. You should try this one next year!

What new thing are you growing this year that you are excited about?
