I bought seeds of Tivoli from Burpee and started my own plants from seed. I wanted to try growing my first winter squash. And my first spaghetti squash. I decided on Trivoli as the description stated the plant was compact. Ha! Not so. The squash grew into a monster that only set two fruit. To make matters worse, the stems were full of SVB larvae. I pulled the plant and will not be growing it again.
