High-yielding plants with an open habit and few spines make it easy to harvest blemish-free fruit. Excellent disease resistance keeps the plant productive over a long season. Bright yellow fruits with solid green stems. Intermediate resistance to powdery mildew, watermelon mosaic virus, and zucchini yellow mosaic virus.
Zucchini plants are frost tender and must be planted when danger of frost is past. For earlier fruit, plant in 8 cm (3 in) jiffy pots or strips 3 to 4 weeks prior to intended date of transplanting to the garden. Plant the seed 4 cm (1 1/2 in) deep and keep the soil warm, 22 C (72 F). Space plants in the garden 1 m (3 ft) apart. Harvest when the fruit is 20 to 30 cm (8 to 12 in) in size. If left on the plant they reach 1 m (3 ft). Fertilize with 10-52-17 and liquid seaweed for strong healthy plants.
