Cocozelle (also known as Cocozella di Napoli) (Cucurbita pepo)
55 days —  Although we harvest the fruits when they are eight to ten inches in length, MM. Vilmorin-Andrieux (1885) stated, "All through Italy . . . the fruit is eaten quite young, when it is hardly the size of a cucumber, sometimes even before the flower has opened, when the ovary, which is scarcely as long or as thick as the finger, is gathered for use. The plants, thus deprived of their undeveloped fruits, continue to flower for several months most profusely . . ."

This Italian heirloom is a garden staple. The plants are bush-type producing long cylindrical zucchini fruit that are dark green striped in lighter green. The flesh is greenish white and firm. Each packet contains three grams, which is approximately 24 seeds.

Simply an incredible product. Can be picked early like most Zucchini types. We find it's best flavor and usability well above "standard" sizes, and our customers agree. Best flavor is in fruits of 12 to 16 inches. Prolific even in years of extreme heat, or very late cold. We have been growing and selling this product for years and it is simply a perennial with our customer, who come back year after year just for this squash.
