This smooth dark zucchini grows fantastic in Southern California and the American Southwest. This prolific grower will produce all season long.

Suggested Planting Requirements:  This summer favorite has a few planting requirements for the best growth and performance. All squashes are warm-season crops and need to be planted in full sun.  Even and consistent watering will give you the greatest crop yield. Although dry farming with squash is possible and commonly practiced in the central coastal farming areas of California, in Southern California the best yield will come from good watering habits. To prevent foliar diseases, water at the base of the plant.  Mulch to retain moisture. You can grow most squashes in a pot, just remember you may need to water more frequently than you do when planting in the ground due to the container drying out faster than squash planted inground.

Growing Recommendations:  Start seeds indoors 3-4 weeks before the last frost, or sow seed directly once soils are at least 70°F.  Row covers can be utilized for a pest barrier as birdies and bunnies love munching on squash.  As with most cucurbits, mounding provides an optimal growing area. Irrigation should be run if possible for areas that do not get good rainfall.  If you notice fruits and flowers falling off, you may need to ensure good pollination by pollinating by hand. You can do so by simply taking the pollen from the male flowers and putting it in the female flowers.

Harvesting & Storage:  Harvest when 4″-7″ to keep production high, and for best flavor.  Flowers can also be harvested and used in cooking. They are deliciously fried and stuffed!
