Climbing vine that produces long pale green zucchini-like fruit with a bulbous end. Fruit is used like a zucchini and has a comparable flavour and tender texture and is best when picked at around 25cm long. Fruits can also be left to mature and will and harden and can be used like a pumpkin. Good disease resistance. Plants do best when grown on a trellis or other medium but can also be grown on the ground. High yielding. Also known as Zucchini Tromboncino, Serpentine Squash, Climbing Crookneck and Zucca Trombetta.
