'Dark Green' Zucchini
(Cucurbita pepo)

50 days — The bush-type plants are vigorous and produce early. The fruits are straight, smooth, mottled dark green. The flesh has a pale green tint to it, is firm and has a fine flavor. We find it best to keep picked at six to eight inches.

Each packet contains four grams, which is approximately 26 to 28 seeds.
gave up on this one
I planted two of these plants, a few feet apart. The seeds germinated perfectly, but the plants never grew over about a foot, and never got more than two or three flowers at once. I finally just gave up with the plants and bought my zucchini from the farmer's market.

VSC NOTES: How disappointing! Zucchini is one of the plants that I recommend to folks who are new gardeners as it is generally one of the easiest things to grow and feel like you have been successful (i.e. zucchini supply for the whole neighborhood!!) I don't know your particular conditions but seeing that you are in SoCal, sun or temperature is not an issue. Zucchini, like all cucurbits, are heavy feeders and do require rich, fertile soil to thrive. Adequate water is also a necessary requirement. Other than that, they usually do great. Again, sorry to hear about your experience and hope that you will try again in a future garden. ~Mike

Execellent crop
WOW! I was so amazed at how well these did. People always trying to give these away but this year it was just perfect for growing these beauties and I enjoyed everyone of them. I pray all things are this perfect to create another bountiful harvest of them in 2017.
