Best Ways To Grow Summer Squash Vertically

Unlike other types of cucurbits, many summer squash varieties have a bushy growth habit.

Some produce short vines which can be trained to a trellis. It’s best to begin when the plants are very young. As the plants grow, tie the stalks to the trellis every few days. 

Black Forest Zucchini – Sometimes referred to by the French name “courgette,” black forest zucchini produces an abundance of long green squash on vines which can reach up to 7 feet (2 m.).

Delicata – Technically classified as a winter squash, this heirloom is a member of the same genus, Cucurbita pepo, as most summer squash varieties.

Greybeard Zucchini – Highly recommended when vertical growing summer squash, this hybrid produces an abundance of fruit. Greybeard is a speckled grayish green squash with a mild flavor. 

Little Gem – Also considered a winter squash, this trailing variety yields an abundance of small, round, dark green fruit in midsummer. The sugary flesh caramelizes nicely when fried.

Rampicante (Tromboncino) Zucchini – This long, slender, Italian heirloom squash widens into a bulb at the blossom end. The light green skin is tender, and the flesh has a sweet nutty flavor.
