These summer delicacies are the true Italian green squash enjoyed for over 100 years for their nutty flavor and tender skin. Easy to grow short vines are very resistant to most diseases that other squash are susceptible to. Each fruit is medium green with distinctive pale green ‘stripes’.

SOWING…Plants 3-5 seeds in ‘hills’ spaced 3-4 feet apart in late spring when soil has warmed to 50 degrees and all danger of frost has past. Cover seed with ½” of soil, press firmly and water well.

GERMINATION…10-15 days depending on soil temperature and weather conditions.

REMARKS…Best if picked when less than 7” long. Plants continue to produce tender, vitamin rich fruits until frost if all fruits are picked before they start to mature. Flowers are also edible and prized for their size to use stuffed with salad or lightly fried. Harvest only the male blossoms (those that do not have tiny squash at the stem end) in late morning after the dew has dried, to ensure the bees have had enough time to visit and pollinate the female flowers which become the cocozelle squash.
