Hot or cold, everybody loves it. Dark zucchini is one of the most productive crops, and one of the best-tasting.

SKU 2SQUASHG
Everybody loves zucchini, hot or cold. It's great for chilled appetizer plates, excellent as a boiled vegetable, and a big favorite sliced for grilling.

When and Where to Plant: Select a sunny location and plant in late spring after soil warms. Soil should be cultivated, enriched with vegetable food and organic matter, firmed over the seed, and kept moist.
Care: Keep soil moist and feed monthly. Don’t worry when first blossoms fail to set fruit.
Harvesting: Pick continuously when fruit is 5-7"/13-18 cm. long and 1-1 1/2"/3-4 cm. thick for best flavor and to extend the plant’s growing season.

Yes, zucchini is a very versatile veggie. You can make it into breads and muffins as well as eat it as a side dish. But no where does it excel more than in the making of ratatouille, a French stew of vegetables. If ever there was a dish that is the epitome of good health, it is ratatouille. It is made up of eggplant, tomatoes, garlic, onion, bell peppers and, of course, zucchini. Now only does zucchini contribute to the flavor of the stew but its rich green coloring contrasts well with the purple egglplant. Lets face it...zucchini is the veggie that does you good!

                          This is about as good as a vegetable gets! Easy to grow, prolific production, and versatile to prepare. Some of my favorites are to fix it like twice baked potatoes, to use it for pickling just like you would cucumbers, and sauteed with onions/peppers/mushrooms @ other summer viggies for a hearty meatless is pasta sauce. Yummy!

                          The versatality is unlimited for this favored zucchini, in a salad, on the grill, or just sauted slowly in garlic butter. How can it get better than these gorgeous green babies.

                          Zucchini jokes need to be taken seriously; when these beauties start producing, stand back! Some gardeners give them away until they run out of neighbors and have to leave piles of their perfect zucchini on the back seats of their cars with the windows open so strangers will steal them. One zucchini plant, planted in full sun with plenty of water, can easily feed a family. If all 54 seeds in the packet sprout, you have the beginning of a truck farm. Reserve your table at the Farmers Market early--these zucchini PRODUCE!

                                    These black zucchini seeds will yield a healthy, affordable, nutritious veggie. It is easy to grill, stuff or bake. Add parmesan cheese and onion for extra zesty flavor!

                                      Very healthy and prolific plants. Made some great breads and ratatoille from these. Will grow them again.

                                          Our family loves this zucchini. We grill it, batter and fry it, can it as relish and bake tons of zucchini bread and muffins...and still have loads to share with friends! It is not only very prolific, it is also very healthy and never a problem with pests.

                                            USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

                                            To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

                                            • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
                                            • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).

                                            Find Your Planting Zone:

                                            Enter your Zip Code to find your USDA Planting Zone
