Tromboncino Squash

What are those? 


We have these weird looking squash that we grew this year called a Tromboncino Squash.  Many folks think they are a gourd but they’re actually a delicious summer squash.

I like to slice them up and steam them for a few minutes.  They are savory and almost butter-y tasting without adding a thing.  You can also slice them up and enjoy them fresh in some dip or sauté them like you would any summer squash.

Of course, I googled Tromboncino Squash to find out a bit more.  They can be picked anywhere from a few inches in size to their full length of 3 feet.  Right now we’re enjoying them fresh but if we leave to fully mature on the vine we can also enjoy them as a winter squash.  I’m excited to try them this way this winter too!
