Tromboncino, organic seeds
This little trombone is an unusual old Italian squash. The smooth, lime green fruits grow long, 5-6 cm thick and are swollen at the flower end, where all the seeds are gathered. It should be harvested at 30 cm but is quite enjoyable even at half a meter. The flesh is smooth and firm. It has mild taste with a hint of artichoke. This vigorous plant is a climber and excellent for binding up. If it is allowed to wind freely on the ground the fruits usually become crooked. Tromboncino can be kept for quite a long time. A portion contains about 8-10 seeds.
