This small squash will quickly transform into a much larger version if given plenty of water and nutrient rich soil. I planted our squash beside our arbor in the hopes that it would climb and eventually cover the arbor. In the past I've used moonflowers but they haven't done much this year. I think this squash is unique enough to categorize as both an ornamental and an edible plant.
According to Renee's Garden Seeds (which was my source for the seeds) 'Trombetta' has a "mild taste with a hint of artichoke!" We'll find out soon since this one looks ready for picking!
What unusual veggies have you tried this year?
