Zucchini types(the garden)

I saw trellised zucchini on a gardening show a few years back. Can someone recommend a variety and tell me where to order the seed? Thanks.

I think almost any squash or melon vine can grow up a trellis. Just tie them up with nylons. Make nylon slings for the heavier fruit.

I would avoid the compact bush kind though. they don't seen to vine mcuh at all.

Trellising makes any vine crop grow straighter. I have found it works well for cukes, and some gourds, but have never found it necessary for zucchinis. They WILL be straighter, but who cares? Save the work for the big cukes. GL, old friend!
