When to Start Inside: Not recommended except in very short growing seasons, 2 to 4 weeks before transplanting. Roots are sensitive to disturbance; sow in biodegradable pots that can be planted directly into the ground. Transplant when soil temperature is at least 60°F.

Thinning: When 3 leaves, thin to 1 plant per mound

Harvesting: Harvest frequently to increase yield; squash seem to get monstrous overnight. While edible at almost any size, seeds are less developed in young fruit, therefore more tender. Using a knife or clippers, cut squash off including some of the stem. By including stem, the fruit is sealed and less likely to mold or dry out. Harvesting Blossoms: Look for male, non-fruit producing flowers that have long stems and harvest just before use (female flowers have a swollen mini-squash at the base of the flower and are on shorter stems).

I harvested my first 4" round zucc today! i am new to growing zucchini and yes, i bought these b/c of the shape :) perfect for stuffing or just frying up in some EVOO. I check daily for little yellow ones that are rotting and just throw them out. I live in zone 6a and barely had any leaf eater problems etc. Originally i planted 3 per mound. only one came up. i waited another week and planted more and those came right up. I need to restrain myself and actually plant the first week of June. I couldn't wait to get out so i planted around may 26th. pretty close to our frost date end. we had a super cold spring so i am sure that was part of the problem. Wish we could post pictures as i would love to share my photos! Highly recommend!

Planted it mid winter in our hydroponic greenhouse. Grew well and has responded to our late February days with tasty, sweet zucchini. We like it prepared the same as fried green tomatoes. Also stuffed and in lasagna. Harvesting one every three days per plant with lots of flowers for stuffing. It has been a bit inconsistent in producing both make and female flowers at the same time. Six plants have kept us nicely supplied.

This has been a really fun and easy squash to grow. It germinated, survived, and grew cooler temperatures of early spring (40s-50s) and has taken off with the 70 deg days. Each plant is producing about 1-2 squash of 4" diameter every 1.5 weeks. I hand pollinated a few of the flowers myself but there was a good female:male flower ratio on my plants. Planted in loose soil with bolted arugula as a wind breaker but no mulch. The flavor is good and size is perfect for fried zucchini rounds or zucchini lasagna.
