Description

Bred in Italy for traditional flavor and style, Romanesco is prized for its creamy, sweet flesh. The tender, plump fruits are classically striped in dark green with slight ridges. Plants offer improved disease resistance and early harvests. This scrumptious zucchini has a nutty-tasting flesh that is never bland or watery. Like all true Italian varieties, Romanesco's edible blossoms hold well on fruits to stuff or sauté as a summer delicacy.

Planting and growing information can be found on the seed packet image.

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 6-8 inches long. Frequent harvesting keeps plants producing. Use flowers for stuffing or sautes.
