Zucchetta is an heirloom climbing summer squash popular throughout Italy. Firmer than zucchini, its flavor is mild and delicious. The zucchetta plant is extremely prolific, requiring a lot of room for its 15’ runners. My first introduction to Zucchetta was at work, when a drug rep gave out seed packets instead of the usual pens and note pads.
