- Squash, Summer
- Costata Romanesco
A great old variety from Italy, Costata is a really delicious Zucchini. Nutty, meaty, and flavorful. The fruits are light green with dark green ribs, and are a bit variable in size. They are best when slightly large, about 12” long. Some say, and I agree, it’s the best tasting zucchini around. I harvested 360# last year from 12 plants. The plants are huge, have some spines to them, and make a lot of male squash blossoms for eating. So far my favorite zucchini!
