Summer Squash - Costata Romanesco (Certified Organic)
C. pepo. Traditional italian heirloom. This is our favorite summer squash for flavor. Still tender and not-too-seedy when large, which is handy for those of us who forget to harvest our summer squash constantly! In fact, flavor improves as they size up so let them get to medium size before picking. Makes great "zucchini chips" in the dehydrator. We've noticed that if you give the plants enough room, Costata Romanesco seems to produce over a longer period of time than other summer squash we've grown.
