These tasty little round zucchinis have been favorites for generations in French farmers markets. Because their skins and tender flesh bruise easily, they are poor candidates for our supermarkets, but are easily grown by home gardeners. Harvest these pretty sqush as babies, when just several inches in diameter, or grow them up to 3-4". Serve the babies steamed or sautéed with other vegetables or stuff the larger ones to bake and serve for great summer meals.

Planting & Care
Soil & Water:Amend soil well before sowing with lots of aged manure or compost.
Planting & Growing:Plant only when spring weather is warm and night temperatures stay above 50 degrees. Sow 2-3 seeds, 1 inch deep, every 2 feet in rows 3 feet apart. Or plant in slightly mounded hills, 2 feet in diameter, sowing 4-5 seeds in each. Thin hill seedlings to 2-3 strongest plants. Protect seedlings from birds. Thin properly for more productive and healthier plants.
Harvesting & Storage: Harvest when several inches in diameter or grow op to 3-4 inches. Frequent harvesting keeps plants producing.
