An early maturing variety. The plant is bushy, low-leafed, with a high percentage of female flowers. The fruit is cylindrical, even, smooth, or slightly ribbed and long. Fruit weight is up to 2 lbs. The color of the fruit is green-black. Excellent taste.Instructions on how to grow zucchini:Zucchini likes well-drained, fertile soil that's been amended with lots of compost. Plant seed outdoors when the soil temperature has reached 60°F—about a week after the last frost. You want to give your squash a lot of room to spread out and grow. Plant them about 3 to 4 feet apart in rows 8 to 12 feet apart. If space is limited, put up a trellis for vertical support.Zucchini like consistently moist soil. To prevent problems with disease, always water from below. Spray plants with compost tea two weeks after seedlings come up. Spray again in three weeks or when the first flowers appear.Pale to brown blotches on leaves are the work of squash bugs. Squash vine borers cause plants to wilt suddenly. (Here's the best way to protect squash from nasty bugs.)Powdery mildew may strike the plants, leaving whitish powdery spots on leaves that turn brown and dry.Harvest zucchini when the fruits are still small—about 4 inches long. Picking zucchinis regularly as they reach maturity promotes more squash production.Fun fact: You can eat the zucchini flowers too! Enjoy them in salads, serve them over pasta, or even try them fried.You can store zucchini in the refrigerator for about a week. Happy harvest!
