Description

This wonderful Italian heirloom summer squash is a vigorous climbing vine, producing many 12-15", lime-green fruits with a curvaceous trombone shape and a delicate mild taste with a hint of nutty artichoke flavor. Trombocino flesh is seedless and firm and doesn't get watery or mushy like regular zucchini. The rambling plant swill 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.

While Renee's Garden seeds are not all certified organic, they do not sell treated or GMO seeds and have signed the "Safe Seed Pledge.”

Planting & Care

Planting: Squash needs full sun, rich, fertile soil and warm temperatures. Plant only when spring weather is warm and settled and night temperatures stay above 55°F. Train vigorous Trombetta vines up 6-8' stakes or a fence or trellis where they will make a lush, leafy arbor or canopy and save garden space. Plant in full sun, sowing 3 or 4 seeds 1" deep and 4" from vertical supports. Thin to the strongest seedlings for each pole or to 12" apart along a fence.

Growing: Amend soil well before sowing with lots of aged manure or compost. Protect young seedlings from marauding birds by covering with plastic berry baskets at planting time, removing when plants get crowded. Thing properly to get best quality fruits and highest yield. As young plants grow, tie them to supports.

Harvest & Use: Softly curved, lime-green Trombetta squashes are best harvested no longer than 10-12" long and as thick around as cucumbers. Sauté or stuff them, or use in any of your favorite summer squash recipes. Cook until just tender to enjoy their fine flavor and texture.

Big thumbs up

2016 was the first year I grew these. Most definitely am planting again in 2017. You need a fair amount of room - but so well worth it. Great flavor. They do not get waterlogged like yellow summer squash when cooked. Roasts wonderful. And what I roasted and froze came out of the freezer almost as good as when fresh roasted. No squash bores - though I always plant dill seeds by my squash and this helps. ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL!!!!

Won't get mushy when steamed

2014 will be the 5th year I have opted for Trombetta squash rather than traditional zuchinnis. In my garden they are hugely productive, the vines are beautiful and the squash is unbelievably delicious. I put mine on one of those inexpensive wedding arches as an entrance to my front yard garden.
