It’s an heirloom summer squash that grows in abundance. Seriously, it’s a heavy producer.
We find ourselves harvesting daily to keep up with all of the zucchini… so get your recipe list ready. I make all sorts of things… zucchini fries, zucchini bites, zucchini bread, stir-fried zucchini… the list goes on.
So it’s a great vegetable to grow, because it’s so versatile and is extremely easy to grow!
How to Plant:
If you’re planning to plant zucchini, choose a place with full sun. They like at least 6 to 8 hours per day.
And they get really big, so I place 2 seeds at least three feet apart, well draining soil.
Don’t plant them deep, and you should see them sprouting within a week. You should be ready to harvest within about 48 days. When harvesting, don’t forget to search under the huge leaves. This zucchini has a tendency to hide and before you know it, they are huge.
The idea flavor is at about 6 inches long and you should consistently get the fruit until the cold kills it.
The leaves get big and bushy… they are gorgeous. Be careful though, they do have tiny spikes on the leaves.
