Popular heirloom zucchini for home gardens for many years.
This does not have the drought-or-cold-resistance of Dark Star, but it is dependable and tasty, and much less expensive, so we can give you full-size packets.
BOTANICAL NAME: Curcurbita pepo
Start indoors up to a month before last frost or direct-sow. Transplant 18" apart into well-composted warm soil. Mulch is good unless squash bugs are a problem-they hide in it. (Diatom dust on the stems and surround soil helps, but use drip or water in one spot only to retain dust.)
