Default Anyone grown Rugosa Friulana?

I was surprised to learn that RF is a moschata, which would suggest good SVB and squash bug resistance. Is that consistent with your experiences?

Also, I can't seem to find a clear description of the growth habit. Does it grow on long vines like other moschatas? How long?

I have family members who are fond of crooknecks, but I find them a bit watery and bland, and they're especially attractive to pests from what I understand. Seems like this would be a good compromise, as it's supposed to be firmer with stronger flavor (seems like this is true of most Italian varieties), and if consistent with other moschatas, it should have more resistance to pests.
