Had a great summer crop. Would buy again!
This is one of several varieties of summer squash and zucchini that I planted. It produces well, and more importantly, squash pests (both squash bugs and borers) attack it last. Beautiful fruit and vigorous plants...
Seeds geminated well and vine is doing very good. The flavor is excellent. This was my first year to grow them and they will be in my garden every year. HIghly recommend. Also, always pleased with Pinetree Garden service and products.
I was introduced last year to zephyr by a friend who got a plant at a local farmer's market. I liked the flavor and texture, so I ordered seeds this year. I started them inside and placed them outside in a small "greenhouse" during the day and brought them in at night until the weather warmed up. They sprouted easily and this method worked well. I have one in a larger container and one in the ground. The ground is always better for nutrients. We had 115 degree weather. That was hard on the squash plants, especially in black containers. The leaves are looking yellow. I probably watered so much to keep up with the heat that he nutrients were leached out. Now, I topped the potted squash plants off with compost/manure. The one in the ground is doing well. It wasn't in the all-day heat and I started it later. I like the flavor and texture and they germinate easily and grow quickly.
We love these squash ! I hve taken them to our local food bank and people are asking for them!
