Product Number: W288
Grew in 2017 on trellis-they were awesome. Grew 2018 running aground and slugs kept eating end tips so they rotted (wicked bad slug year with tons of rain here in southern Vermont). Will trellis from now on. I use concrete reinforcing wire and it holds them great. Harvest young, or let some grow all season and they get huge and keep almost like a winter squash. Leaves are tasty too. Freeze at end of season for soups, etc. Kind of sweet and a great nutritious green.
I garden in raised beds using my version of square foot gardening. Traditional zucchini needs a lot of space. I planted two plants to grow up a 6 foot trellis. The harvest was overwhelming. The fruits were numerous and better than any zucchini I ever ate. I have used it for zucchini bread and cake with the same excellent results. This squash will remain a yearly addition to my garden. Try this you will thank me when you eat the end results.
We grew these many years ago and wanted to do so again. I had a good germination rate with a little slow starting afterwards. Transplanted to 20 gallon containers with lots of rich compost and a drip system water source. Two months in and the plants are growing up our neighbors 6 foot fence and running along the top another 4 feet. Many blooms and 4 inch squash starting. I feed them now every two weeks with diluted fish fertilizer or compost tea. These are wonderful squash with a unique flavor. I will grow them again.

loving the squash.
My Indiana garden got a late start because we had snow and cold right up to May 1. Then the weather abruptly turned August-like. I got my squash plants in the ground near the end of May. June 15 they are already halfway up my 8’ tower. And they show no signs of stopping! A few tiny squash have set on. Can’t wait to eat them!
