Trombetta di Albenga Squash is Curcurbita moschata Duch

We are enjoying the Trombetta Squash.

Male flowers have no fruit at the base.

Here's the problem with growing squash - squash bugs.

They lay an endless number of eggs that have to be removed every day.

The reward is watching these little trumpets grow.

You can grow this squash on a trellis where it will hang but our plants are crawling on the ground like a winter squash. It is tender and flavorful - good eats.
