Lunga di Napoli seeds are now up on the website! If you are dreaming of warmer soils and warmer days, please take a mouth-watering and heart-warming vacation to www.trueloveseeds.com and start planning your garden while supporting the amazing farmers of Truelove Seeds.
Lunga di Napoli Winter Squash is HUGE and flavorful. Feed your whole village on one of these fruits, which will store many months into the winter. They are delicious in squash fritters, risotto, and stews. Throughout Puglia and Campagna (places where my great grandparents were born), and also Sicily, Lunga di Napoli Winter Squash is featured in a soup called cianfotta or giambota, which also includes chili pepper, eggplant, tomato, pears and plums. As the same species as Butternut, these plants have strong stems and are much more resistant than your average squash to squash vine borers. The vines are quite long, and the largest fruit we grew this year was over 50lbs, though we hear they can even get larger!
