Botanical Name: Cucurbita pepo (hybrid)

Days to Maturity: 50 days

Family: Cucurbitaceae

Native: North America

Hardiness: Frost-sensitive annual

Plant Dimensions: Compact, spineless plants form a 2' tall by 3'–4' wide, bush–type plant.

Variety Information: 6"–8" long, cylindrical fruits with golden yellow skin and lighter stripes. Creamy white interior. Leaves may also produce some golden color.

Type: Bush

Attributes: Good for Containers

When to Sow Outside: RECOMMENDED. 1 to 2 weeks after your average last frost date, and when soil temperature is 70°–85°F.

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.

Days to Emerge: 5–10 days

Seed Depth: ½"–1"

Seed Spacing: 2–3 seeds per mound

Row Spacing: 3'–4'

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).

Super Squash

5 out of 5 stars Sep 20, 2019
I planted this variety a bit later than the others I always grow, but it caught up almost over night! Big yields, delicious flavor and super popular at farmer's Market. Sold out every day! Definitely will plant this one again!

Disappointing Germination Results

3 out of 5 stars May 20, 2021
There are 10 seeds in the package and only 4 ended up germinating. All of the other squash I am growing had amazing germination rates. Really disappointed because the fruit coloring is why I got these and they did not grow.

Total bust

I was so looking forward to this new zucchini. But not one of the 10 seeds I spent almost $4 on sprouted not in the soil and not under LED lights in the greenhouse. I've sent an email as the seeds should be under the guarantee.

Owner Response: Hi Rob, We do guarantee our seeds and quality is very important to us. Our seeds are tested regularly by a third-party laboratory to ensure germination rates meet federal and our own standards. A customer service agent will be contacting you.

This are very pretty, but tend to be dry inside. Just cutting and adding to a dish adds color, but I will not plant again.
