Black Beauty Zucchini Squash

(1 review) Write a Review

The classic dark-green summer squash that has made modern zucchini of this type popular. Introduced in the US markets in the 1920's, and seed companies started listing it in the 1930's. Delicious fried or baked. Best picked when 6 to 8" long. Sow 1-2 seeds about 36" apart and cover with 1" of fine soil after danger of frost. Firm lightly and keep evenly moist. 56 days to maturity.                      

Approx. 50 seeds

    I planted the zucchini three weeks ahead of the approximate last frost date in 4 inch pots to give them a head start, although sometimes I just direct plant them if I do not have time to get the starts growing. We harvested a steady amount through the season and froze a lot for the winter soups and stews.
