description for "Summer Squash: Cucurbita pepo 'Rugosa Friulana'"

While the name of this Italian summer squash translates to "wrinkled skin", 'Rugosa Friulana' is anything but. In fact, this yellow colored squash is actually covered in bumpy warts, even when it is young. This rich and flavorful selection can be enjoyed fresh, grilled or fried. Maturity in 50 days.
