Squash Summer Max's Gold Zucchini Seeds

Squash Summer Max's Gold Zucchini Seeds

Cucurbita pepo (hybrid)

Item #0248

55 days. We were impressed with Max’s Gold because of its beautiful color outside, and flavorful, firm squash inside. Long, straight fruits have a small seed cavity meaning there’s more delicious squash to eat, and it’s ideal for cooking and grilling. Great flavor for eating fresh or adding to salads. Keep picked and plants continue to produce throughout the summer months.

When to sow outside: RECOMMENDED. 2 to 4 weeks after average last frost and when soil temperatures have risen above 60°F.

When to start inside: Not recommended except in very short season climates, 2 to 4 weeks before average last frost. Sow in individual pulp pots that can be planted directly in the ground.

Harvesting: For optimum flavor and quality, harvest at 3" long for “baby” zucchini, and 6" - 8" for all other uses. If allowed to grow 10" - 12" or larger, the flesh can be used for breads, but the tough seeds must be discarded.
