Finding White Zucchini Plants Or Seeds - Knowledgebase Question

San Carlos, CA
Question by kbarone4

I can purchase "white zucchini" in one of my local supermarkets. They are pale green, stubbier than
regular zucchini, and taste sweeter. I'd love to plant some in my garden but cannot find plants
or seeds in any of the nurseries around here, and I notice that Burpee does not list them in stock. What are
they called and how can I order them? Thank you.

I think you're describing 'Tromboncino', an Italian summer squash that's light green in color, with tender, white flesh, and looks like a pale zucchini. Seeds are available from Territorial Seed Company, PO Box 157, Cottage Grove, OR 97424-0061. Phone (541) 942-9547.
