Product Overview

Cucurbita pepo

Exemplary Italian heirloom with big, nutty flavor. Deep ribs make cross-cuts a beautiful, intriguing presentation.

'Costata Romanesco' delivers a manageable harvest of high-quality, fluted fruits with complex flavor and firm texture. The striped and mottled skin stays tender even to 18", though in Italy they are picked at 4"-5" with the blossoms still attached. Large production of male blossoms for stuffing.

Variety Info

Best harvested under 12". Light gray-green fruits with lighter stripes and distinct ribbing. Good producer of male blossoms for cooking.

Sowing Inside

Not recommended except in very short growing seasons, 2 to 4 weeks before transplanting. Roots are sensitive to disturbance; sow in biodegradable pots that can be planted directly into the ground. Transplant when soil temperature is at least 60°F.

Sowing Outside

RECOMMENDED. 1 to 2 weeks after your average last frost date, and when soil temperature is 70°–85°F.
