Marina Di Chioggia

The Marina Di Chioggia is one of those other-worldy squashes. With its Turban type 2-part sections, the blue green color and the knobby tangling of warts and bumps, this is the fruit of fairytales, bogs, and trolls.

Like most squashes and pumpkins, its roots are in the Americas but it was the Italians that cultivated this squash for culinary purposes. It is the go-to squash for gnocchi.
