Description

Astia is a well-bred French bush Zucchini variety, developed especially for container growing and planting in small space gardens. These non-rambling, compact squash vines are also highly ornamental with big silvery-green, deeply indented leaves. Early bearing and productive, Astia bears abundant zucchini near the base of the plant where they are easy to harvest. These uniformly smooth, lustrous, glossy-green zucchini have excellent flavor and are delicious whether roasted, sautéed, steamed or baked.

While Renee's Garden seeds are not all certified organic, they do not sell treated or GMO seeds and have signed the "Safe Seed Pledge.”

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. Plant in slightly mounded hills, 3 feet in diameter and 3 feet apart. Plant seeds in a triangular pattern with 2 seeds 1" deep at each point. Thin hill seedlings to 3 strongest plants. Protect seedlings from birds. For container growing use fresh, good quality soil and sow seeds 4" from edges. When 3-4" tall, remove all but the strongest seedlings so that one (15" diameter pot) or two (20" diameter pot) remain. For larger pots spacing should be 8-10" apart.

Harvesting & Storage: Harvest when 5" inches long. Frequent harvesting keeps plants producing.
