Zucchini - Black Beauty- Cucurbita pepo

Annual. A very popular variety of summer squash. Fruit is dark green, glossy and tapers towards each end. Plants are compact and easy to grow producing an abundance of fruit throughout the summer. Delicious when baked, boiled, fried, steamed and raw in a variety of recipes.

Soil & Water: Provide squash plants with deep mounds of organic matter, rich soil, and heavy, even water. All squash are extremely frost sensitive, so use mulch to heat soils in early spring and row covers to protect from frost at both ends of the growing cycle, especially in short growing seasons.

Planting & Growing: Start seeds indoors 3-4 weeks before the last frost, or sow seed directly once soils are at least 70F. Use row covers to provide a physical barrier to insects.

Harvesting & Storage: Harvest squash when they are 4"-7" long for best flavor and to keep production high. Don't waste male squash blossoms by leaving them in the garden. Toss them in the salad bowl or add to any squash preparation.
