Zucchini - Rampicante

Love Grow Eat


A summer and winter squash that goes by many names in Italy but commonly called a climbing zucchinin (because it grows like a vine), little trombone squash or an Albenga pumpkin. Last year we grew it for the first time and we found it firmer than the usual zucchini when cooked. 

Popular as a young summer squash but also left to mature and used in pumpkin dishes based around pasta especially stuffing in gnocchi and ravioli. Cooked with yellow tomatoes, the dark yellow flesh makes a delicious soup. The large male flowers are perfect for stuffing or frying.
