I purchased Lemon Squash from Baker Creek and will be trying it this year. Based on the reviews, etc. it sounds like it vines vigorously.

I also did a search last year. The fact of the matter is that squash are vines, but they are mostly creeping, not climbing vines like peas or pole beans. At least I could find no climbing squashes, aside from the Tromboncino. They can be grown vertically, in a fashion, but it requires good management of pruning and tieing and such.

Mud, are you looking for any other types of vegetable seeds or do you have any to trade?

Last year I grew Potimarron squash up an arched cattle panel. These table size (3-4 lb.) Italian winter squashes did okay, producing two or three per vine. I tied the vines up the cattle panel until they reached the peak of the arch, then the developing fruits hanging through the panel kept the vines in place. However, the most spectacular vining squash using the deer/elk fence to climb on was spaghetti squash from seed Squat Johnson sent me. (Still think he had created a squash-kudzu cross. Laughing ) Just don't plant squashes that develop into BIG fruits, unless you rig a support under them. Good growing to you! Nonna

Tromboncino, spaghetti and butternut squashes all have done well for me on a trellis.

Just to clarify on my previous remarks, they were directed to the inquiry about yellow summer and green zucchini types of summer squash.
