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.

Most prolific and disease-free

I'm so glad I planted these in pots this year. They were extremely productive and tasted delicious.

Best

I always search for the patio version of zucchini, these are just as prolific but with a smaller plant. Yay

Prolific and self-contained

This is the only long zucchini I now grow - all winter in the greenhouse, and outside during summer. It does not take up a lot of space and bears prolific zucchini. A true winner!

Grows like a weed in an aquaponic system

Started seeds in a Dixie cup indoors under lights: fast germination and sprouting. Transplanted into an indoor aquaponic grow bed and am impressed with the amount of growth in a few weeks. Great start so far.

Excellent early bearing vegetable

This zucchini is a delicious tasting, early bearing plant. I recommend it highly for containers and small gardens. Pick zucchini when 5" long.
