"Dark Green" is the traditional dark-green zucchini that produces large quantities of nice straight fruits that just keep coming. A reliable variety that has proven itself year after year.
When and Where to Plant: Tender Annual. Direct sow seeds after danger of frost has passed. Optimal soil temperature for germination is 85-F. Seeds can also be started indoors 3-4 weeks before frost date for earlier harvests. Harden plants off by reducing temperature and water. Plant outdoors after danger of all frost has passed. Black plastic mulch and floating row cover can be used to increase soil and air temperature.
