Beretta di Lungavilla Squash
Cucurbita maxima 'Beretta di Lungavilla'
Uses: Culinary Duration: Annual
When to Sow: Spring Ease of Germination: Easy
A spectacular old Italian squash that has been grown in the small village of Lungavilla in the Lombardy region for probably close to two hundred years. Now listed as a rare and endangered Italian heirloom, it is an exquisite squash with smooth delicious flesh. This and other squashes like it are often called "Bishops caps" because of the sectioned base. Should be easy to grow wherever other squash varieties do well. Pick them when the stem is too hard to be punctured with a fingernail, or wait until frost and then harvest. Excellent cooked like other squashes, in soups or as a side dish after roasting or boiling.
