Zephyr Summer Squash (F1 Hybrid 54 days )

Two tone, slender fruits are light yellow with faint white stripes and have a distinctive pale green blossom end, which can vary in hue and size. A one of a kind hybrid squash with crookneck, delicata and acorn squash in its family genes. Harvest at 4-6 inches for a delicate,  nutty flavor.

20 seeds

 

 

PLANTING:

Germination- 7-10 days

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.

Zephyr squash

I really like Zephyr - tender, flavorful, and pretty to boot! This is my second year growing it. First year it got shaded out by the tall tomatoes so hoping for more yield this year!!

Very productive

Sprouted quickly and out produced all of the other squash varieties I grew. I even planted a second round after the squash bugs took out all of the squash . I harvested until late October.

Didn't germinate

We realize that we started the seeds late in the season but only ordered them because they were suppose to be unappealing to the squash vine borer. We planted one hill with 3 seeds and nothing happened. No Sprouts. Temps have dropped. Will try again next year.

Great

All the seeds sprouted in a couple of days and the plants are looking great.
