Default borer resistant squish

just reading along in another forum and
came across this and thought i would post it
here for T.

Tromboncino (a.k.a Zucchetta Rampicante)

a very long squash, can be harvested young
and used like zukes, but also runs a long vine
which will root at the junctions so it is
resistant to squash borer damage.

if left to grow long it also is a winter
squash. once it hits seed stage the vine
will stop producing so have to keep it picked.
