Latino best garden squash
Reviewed By: Chris (Riverton, UT)
The Latino squash is far superior to a zucchini because they can still be enjoyed at a larger size. We slice them up as steaks and can even freeze the steak slices. Very prolific plant.

Pick Early for Best Results
Reviewed By: Rachel (Columbus, OH)
Like any zuchinni, these grow fast and if you don't pick the fruit while it is still small, they will change shape to a gourd like shape rather than a cylander. They are excellent for making zuchinni bread, the texture was perfect and they freeze well.

Great squash - much better than zucchini. Has a wonderful buttery flavor. Plants do get pretty big but will produce many fruits!

The BEST!!
Reviewed By: Jo (Carthage, NY)
This is the best zucchini I have ever had. I eat alot of zucchini and my family wont eat it because it is watery. This is NOT. It cooks wonderfully and I can't wait to freeze some since the water content is low it should freeze better. This one is a keeper!!!!!
