Rampicante is an Italian curly squash. Aside from their way cool shapes, these guys are amazing in that you can eat them at any stage of growth from blossom to little green baby squash, to beige and fully ripe. They are a combination summer/winter squash.
Pick them green and cook them like summer squash.
Pick them ripe and cook them like winter squash. They have a delicious orange flesh that is wonderful sliced and baked.
The seeds are in the bulb at the bottom.
It's really delicious baked with some of the glazes I talked about last week.
