Dark Green Zucchini Organic Squash Seeds 4185. Heirloom Vegetable.

Approx. 20 seeds/pkt (10-12 seeds/gram)

This bushy summer squash will be loaded with 30-75 cm (12-30″) fruits. Grows 60-90 cm in height. We suggest picking the fruit when it is small for best flavour and texture. Larger fruit are excellent for making muffins and bread. While this zucchini does not run, it can still take up a decent sized space in the garden of 150 cm square (5′ x 5′). This is a prolific variety so look to supply the entire neighbourhood with only a plant or two!

How to Grow

Summer squash are a hot weather crop. As such they need full sun and warm, deep, rich, well drained, organic soil with a pH of 5.5 to 6.5. Before planting, work in lots of compost. Directly plant seed outdoors from late May to mid June 2.5 cm (1″) deep in hills 2.4 m (8′) apart with 4-6 seeds per hill. After germination, thin to 3 plants per hill. Seed can be started indoors 3 weeks before the plant out date. Squash do not transplant well–use paper or fibre pots that can be set directly in the soil. Protect mature squash from frost and cold.
