An Italian heirloom from the city of Albenga on the Riviera that is full of surprises.
A unique, climbing squash that needs to be trellised. If harvested around 25-30 cm when the skin is light green and soft, they can be used as a courgette/zucchini. If left to mature when the skin develops to a creamy tan colour, the skin hardens enabling short term storage into winter.
Exceptionally sweet and nutty flavours make this a potential new favourite in your garden.
These long, curved, unique zucchinis can grow up to an impressive 1m long and are a fun feature in any vegetable garden.
