Romanesco Zucchini Squash, Cucurbita pepo ‘Romanesco Zucchini’, is an Italian variety that produces delicious, flavorful zucchini with ridged green skin and pale insides. These are prolific plants that produce all summer long.
The distinctive, long fruit are fluted and ribbed; medium green-striped skin; rich and very flavorful and the cut slices are scalloped. The pale flesh has a nutty flavor and can be eaten raw or cooked.
Our squash plants are growing in large 4.5" pots and are seeded with 1-2 plants per pot. It is not necessary to divide them; just plant them together in a "hill" which will allow plants to spread in all directions.
These are very large plants which are hard to keep contained in a large pot, so they do best in the ground. Allow 3 feet of growing space per pot. ‘Costata Romanesco’ zucchini loves warm weather and grows quickly into a very large plant.
