crucifer, cabbage family Cucurbita pepo

Striped Genoa zucchini

This is a different sort of zucchini. The open bush makes harvest easy with highly visible fruits. It gives modest, not super high, yields. But what it lacks in bulk it makes up for with a unique culinary experience. These zucchinis have a rich taste that is all its own. It is a real treat!

Sow from mid-April as single seeds in 10-cm pots at about 20º C. Lightly cover seeds with loose soil or sand and keep moist. Transplant into the field from May 20th at the foot of the compost pile or in nutrient-rich soil. (Beware of slug damage!) Keep free from frost. Space individual plants at 80–100 cm on all sides.
