Zucchini 'Costata Romanesca'

She's a beaut!  'Costata Romanesca' harvested on Aug 3, 2010.

According to the seed supplier, this gorgeous variety is often voted the 'best tasting of all zucchini'.  I love the distinctive stripes and intricate patterns of it's skin, but I was instantly hooked when I grilled thick slices coated lightly in olive oil, salt and pepper.  It's wonderfully nutty and delicious... a must-grow for me from now on.
