Black Beauty Zucchini
(Cucurbita pepo) . An All-America Selections winner in 1957. Produces an abundance of tender zucchini with glossy, green skins that darken as they mature. Plants bear over a long period and are heavy producers. Zucchini are best harvested when they are 8" or smaller, but should you find one of those giant "footballs" hiding beneath a leaf, don't despair, it's still good for freezing or juicing (zucchini are high in vitamins and folate). 50 days to harvest. 25 days seeds/pkt.
CULTURE: After danger of frost has passed, sow 4-5 seeds per hill with 3' between hills and 5' between rows. Germination will occur in 7-14 days. Once seeds have germinated thin to 3 seedlings per hill.
It’s still very early in the growing season but these guys mean business, they are growing at a great rate
My order arrived in a timely manner. I received communication about my order from the time I submitted the order until it was delivered via USPS. The packing was closed well and secure to keep seeds safe and contained. This morning my zucchini seeds began to sprout. I have the little seedlings in starter cups. Looking forward to a delicious harvest!
