Maturity: 60 days
Farmer-direct seed from Seed Revolution Now in San Mateo, California.
Bill Reynolds brought us this cosmic cross between Raven and Black Beauty zucchini and it has set the standard for zucchini in our gardens. Harvest a bounty of glossy dark green fruit with a creamy interior at 8-10" for best flavor. Fruit holds well on the vine and in the fridge. Open 2-3' bush plant habit and smooth stalks provide painless picking and less scarring to fruit. Does well under stress and dry conditions, bountiful producer in a warm summer. We grow ours outside without cover with no issues in our Zone 4a/5b but will benefit from covering in cooler zones.
This seed is increasingly difficult to get and the main grower had a crop failure. We feel grateful to have some of Steve Peters' limited stock.
Zucchini need to be hand pollinated if grown without insects present such as inside a hoop house or greenhouse.
