Description
Zucchini, Black Beauty (Cucurbita pepo)
60 days — The bush-type plants are very productive.  Although you can use the squash at just about any point, we start picking fruits when they are about six to eight inches long by two inches in diameter and dark green in color.  We prefer them at this young and tender stage.  They are excellent lightly steamed, sauteed, or stir-fried.

Medium sized to large fruits can cooked in the same way as above, but since they are ready during our "barbeque season," I like to quarter the zucchini lengthwise and with the skill left on, marinated in an olive oil and herb marinade and then grill them.  They are black-green to almost black at maturity.

One of the most popular varieties for the second half of the 20th Century.  Introduced and an "All-America Selection®" winner in 1957. Bush-type plants.  Each packet contains three grams, which is approximately 20 seeds.

Perfect Zucchini Plant
I had great success with this variety. I was lucky not to have mildew problems. My plants were HUGE and I sometimes didn't see the zuc fruit until they were very large. I prefer to pick them small but all sizes had great flavor. My plants eventually wilted because of vine borer I think but that wasn't until very late. This plant is a must for anyone's garden.

Long Harvest
I planted several different summer squash in 2013. This summer was slow warming up and we had to deal with powdery mildew. I mulch my gardens and used some homemade sprays to help combat this problem. Because of the weather they were slow to produce BUT I picked these till the end of October. They tasted wonderful and I blanched then froze most of them for this winter. The results were great. I will be planting this zucchini again.

Good producer
I purchased this last season. It was frantic because I could not find zucchini anywhere. I thought there was a shortage. So I grew these and was not disappointed at the amount and quality of the squash. Also started to keep that squash beetle away by companion planting. It worked! Only thing is I forgot to harvest any seeds for next season. So I reordered along with another type to try. I love it with all kinds of ways to fix. This season for The Christmas holiday I made zucchini bread and shared it with everyone. Can't wait to get gardening next season.

Grew well for the weather
The plants grew well and fast. I got a few squash off each plant before they got powdery mildew and with all this rain most everything got some kind of fungus this year.

VSC NOTES: There is certainly nothing that we can do about rain at the wrong time but one thing to try in the future is mulching heavily around the plants with something like straw. It helps to keep water from splashing from the soil onto the plants which reduces the opportunity for soil-borne diseases to infect the plants. ~Mike
