Summer Squash - Dark Green Zucchini - Cucurbita pepo

Annual This zucchini produces small, uniform, high-quality fruit usually found only in hybrids. An excellent producing plant, the skin is dark green with light flecks. Tiny baby squash can be used as appetizers or leave whole and saut? with other vegetables.

Soil & Water: Provide squash plants with deep mounds of organic matter, rich soil, and heavy, even water. All squash are extremely frost sensitive, so use mulch to heat soils in early spring and row covers to protect from frost at both ends of the growing cycle, especially in short growing seasons.

Planting & Growing: Start seeds indoors 3-4 weeks before the last frost, or sow seed directly once soils are at least 70F. Use row covers to provide a physical barrier to insects.

Harvesting & Storage: Harvest squash when they are 4"-7" long for best flavor and to keep production high. Don't waste male squash blossoms by leaving them in the garden. Toss them in the salad bowl or add to any squash preparation. (The stem of male blossom is thin; the stem of the female blossom is thick.)

Did You Know? Never peel summer squash because that is where the nutrients reside.
