description for "Summer Squash: Cucurbita pepo 'Costata Romanesco'"

Known for its distinctive coloring and taste is 'Costata Romanesco' summer squash. With its medium green colored skin and pale green stripes, this squash also has deep ribbing. This bush variety tends to have only half of the yields of hybrids, but usually produces better tasting fruit. Enjoy the nutty and delicious taste either raw or cooked. Additionally, the male blossom buds can also be cooked and eaten. Maturity in 52 days. Edited by S. Derr
