Famous for sweet flavor
this Italian Heirloom is a staff favorite.
Small seed cavity, outstanding flavor and texture.
In our trials, it was the best-tasting zucchini, and customers seem to agree; it has become a best-seller. Beautiful striped white and green fruits slightly bulbed at the end. Very heat and drought-resistant. Pick when 6-8" long. Don't plant too early--soil must be really warm.
BOTANICAL NAME: Curcurbita pepo
Start seeds in flats or plant directly into garden. Don't rush the season-the seeds will not sprout without warmth! Heat mats or a very warm sunny window are best for early plantings. Carefully transplant seedlings 18" apart after soil has warmed and all danger of frost is past. Amend soil with ample amounts of compost or decomposed manure. Make sure of adequate water. Harvest young for fresh use, large for drying.
