Matures in 50 Days

Although all squash have their roots in the America’s, Zucchini was perfected in Italy. This popular summer variety starts to produce a generous crop of medium green oblong fruits on compact bush type vines in just 50 days! Young fruits have a sweet slightly nutty flavor and become milder as they become larger. Best harvested when less than 7” long.

SOWING…Plant seeds outdoors in late spring when ground has warmed to 50 degrees and all danger of frost has past. Traditionally planted in ‘hills’ of 3-5 seeds in each 6” circle, cover seed with ½” of soil, press firmly and water in well. Each hill should be spaced 3-4 feet apart. Since this is a compact growing variety, a single plant can also be planted in a 15” container.

THINNING…When plants are 2-3” tall, thin to leave 2-3 pf the strongest seedlings in each hill (or one per container).

GERMINATION…in 10-14 days depending on soil temperature and weather conditions.

REMARKS…Plants will continue to produce until frost if fruits are kept picked. Eaten fresh, fried, pureed and sauteed. These plants also produce very large flowers, and are a favorite to stuff, dip in egg and bread crumbs then sauteed in butter! Remember to pick only the male blossoms (if you pick all the blossoms, you will not get any squash).
