Unusual Varieties...any Suggestions?
One of the things I enjoy about home gardening is we get to try all kinds of unusual varieties which we would never find in a store. To me, it's fun and exciting to watch these types start to grow and mature.
Sometimes the taste or flavor isn't exactly what I could have wished for but sometimes there is also major successes.
One of those successes was the Trombonchino. It is a summer squash without all the bad habits (the evil squash vine borer) of zucchini. It looks completely different but really just tastes the same. It also has a really long window of harvest without it losing its excellent flavor and taste. You can harvest it anywhere from about 4-6" all the way up to 3-4 feet.
So let me know if anyone else has had any major successes with unusual varieties they have grown and why. I'd really like to try some of them also.
