Squash Summer Black Beauty Zucchini Organic HEIRLOOM Seeds

Cucurbita pepo

Item #3049

55 days. Zucchini is one vegetable that just won’t quit! Dark green, shiny fruits with tender skin are very versatile in the kitchen. Can be steamed, sautéed, added to soups, omelets, and breads, made into relish and eaten raw in salads or with dip. This highly productive bush type plant takes up little garden space. Zucchini that “get away from you” and become very large are great for relish! See inside of packet for recipe.

This packet sows 5 mounds.

Days to Emerge:
5-10 days

Seed Depth:
1/2"-1"

Seed Spacing:
3 seeds per mound

Mound Spacing:
3'-4'

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


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

When to start inside: Not recommended except in very short growing seasons, 2 to 4 weeks before average last frost. Sow in paper or pulp pots that can be planted directly into the ground. Transplant when soil temperature is at least 60°F.

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 so, the flesh can be used for breads, but the tough seeds must be discarded.
