zephyr squash growth habit

I've been thinking I'd like to try zephyr squash this fall, but I'm pretty limited on space and I'm not sure how it grows. I know that despite the fact that it's a summer squash it has a lot of butternut in its ancestry, so is it more of a bush type or a vining plant?

Zephyr squash is a big straightneck type. C. Pepo No butternut C. moschata heritage.Bush is large like a zucchini But a bush non the less

RE: zephyr squash growth habit

Thanks, farmerdill. Yes, I should have said acorn and delicata rather than butternut. But I'm glad to know it's a regular bush.

RE: zephyr squash growth habit

It gets bigger than any other bush summer squash, but it is a favorite of mine.
