Zuchetta rugosa friulana — Wrinkled from Friuli. These produce an abundance of light yellow, "warty" fruit. Actually, they are pretty ugly but they taste very good and the flowers hold extremely well. This is the most common zucchini in the markets of Venice in summer.

I absolutely love this squash! The texture is dense and buttery with great flavor, and it doesn't get mushy like ordinary zucchini has a tendency to. It's very good sauteed or roasted with corn and peppers, or sliced very thinly on a mandoline and eaten raw with lemon juice, olive oil, and whatever other vegetables and/or herbs you have on hand.
