Germ 7-10 days
Color is a light green with grayish mottling and faint stripes. The earliest and highest yielding zucchini extant, bar none. We’re not sure if that is a virtue or not, but if you think it is, this may be the choice for you. Better line up friends, neighbors, strangers, etc. to take the surplus off your hands. 20 seeds
Indoors- Plant in individual biodegradable peat/cowpots 1/2”-1” deep, 3-4 weeks before last frost with soil temperature 70 degrees. Transplant 36” apart after last frost without disturbing the roots
Outdoors- 1/2”-1” deep after last frost, in warm soil at least 70 degrees. Sow a few seeds per space/hill with 24-36”.
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. Fertilize on a regular basis by watering with compost tea. Sow every few weeks for a continuous supply.
