Product Description

Italian Heirloom that produces a zucchini type summer squash and a butternut type winter squash. Bug resistant...
60 days summer squash, 90 days winter squash. OP. Heirloom from Italy. Cucurbita moschata. Rambling vines produce pale green, 12" to 18" long, thin, summer squash, with a yellow interior, that has more flavor and a firmer texture than zucchinis. Puts them to shame. Very good, indeed! Leave fruits on vine to mature into a 2' to 3' long, curved winter squash that looks like a stretched-out butternut squash. Appears to be squash vine borer and squash bug resistant. Zucca keeps going until frost. We see squash bugs on it, but they never get out of hand or do serious damage. The stem is very woody and corky coming right out of the ground, so we suspect that is why the borer leaves it alone. Amazingly productive, we harvested about 20 winter squashes from one hill. You can trellis and prune the vines at about 8' to keep them from rambling all over the garden. Seed was given to us by an Italian Doctor from Long Island, whose family brought it from Italy.

We have a 6 plant minimum for shipping purposes. You can mix and match varieties to meet the minimum.

We ship every Monday and Tuesday, from late March through late May, to the 48 contiguous states. We schedule your shipment to arrive just after the last frost date for your area. We will send an email from our farm (lazyoxfarmyahoo.com) within 24 hours of receiving your order informing you of your shipping date. You are welcome to change the shipping date. Just let us know when you want them.

Our plants are sustainably raised in our own potting mix. We use only organic fertilizers and sprays if needed. We have been growing and selling plants since 1997.

Our plants are shipped in individual 3" deep pots. They are ready to be planted out in your garden.

We package our plants with extreme care so they arrive undamaged at your doorstep. Each plant is tucked into its own padded sleeve. The soil in each pot is covered so it will not spill out. A plant tag identifying the variety is included with each plant.

We will start accepting orders in early January. We will start shipping in late March, weather permitting.
