Caserta Summer Squash (58 Days)

In 1949, Caserta won the All-America Selections Award as an exceptional Zucchini; it remains so. The bush plant produces 16” zucchini that are quite thin. Fruits are bulbous at the end and narrow at the neck, a light green color alternating with forest green bands. Best harvested young.

Caserta Summer Squash (58 Days)

PLANTING

Cucurbita pepo

Germination: 4-10 days

Germination Temperature: Optimum soil temperatures 70-85ºF

Seed Sowing Depth: 1/2-1" deep

Sowing Indoors: 3-4 weeks before the last frost. Provide 70-85ºF soil temperature. Sow 2-3 seeds per cell/pot. Sowing into individual biodegradable peat/cow pots reduces root damage when transplanting. Transplant 36-48" apart after the last frost. 

Sowing Outdoors: Sow after the last frost when the soil temperature is over 70ºF. Sow a few seeds every 36-48". 

Harvest: Check and harvest a few times a week. Cut or kindly twist off fruit, starting at a 3-4”.

Tips: Plant in fertile soil, amended with compost or well-rotted manure, and keep well watered. They benefit from growing on black plastic and by using row covers for weed, insect control, and more rapid growth.

Long time favorite

Large yield, great tasting zucchini squash that stays firm even when it is larger. What more can you ask for?
