Gardeners' Notes:

My mother used to grow this squash yearly in the Lower Hudson Valley, NY, about 20 years ago. She had great success and we are both trying it again this year. We use it for a Syrian recipe for stuffed squash, and it works well because it gets wider than regular zucchini. She used to save her own seeds year to year. We purchased this year's seeds online.
