Mild-tasting fruit with bright stripes. Connoisseurs prefer the small, tender fruits. The bright yellow flowers are decorative and a delicacy.
Zucchini is a manageable crop. Plant at least two specimens so that they may pollinate one another thereby guaranteeing a regular yield. After germination, sufficient light should be provided. Zucchini prefer humus, nutrient-rich, warm soil in a sunny, protected location. Zucchini need warmth (black plastic mulch beneficial). Keep soil moist.
Sow 2-3 seeds per 9 cm pot or per plot station. Only leave the strongest plants.
