50 days. The classic dark-green summer squash that has made modern zucchini of this type popular. Introduced in the US markets in the 1920's, and seed companies started listing it in the 1930's. Delicious fried or baked; best picked young.

What are the pros? First to produce

What are the cons? "Normal"(which is fine)

Review:

I planted nine varieties of summer squash in my garden, and this was the first to produce and has lots more on the way. I know people look for fancy summer squash varieties. I understand the lure of the "different." But this squash is reliable, early, and a great producer! The bush plants are quite vigorous. I have a clay loam soil, and scorching heat, with cool nights. I have trouble keeping squash watered enough. (I don't like using drip irrigation because I think the tubing leaches chemicals--it's black and in the sun--plus animals chew on it.) This squash tolerates these conditions well. I water once a day, usually, occasionally skipping a day. I love grilled and roasted zucchini, and zucchini bread. This variety fits those needs nicely! I'm going to try dehydrating it this year to preserve it.

Review:

Did amazing in my Tucson, Arizona garden. I had bountiful squash all summer although vine borers took over. I will definitely grow this every year and hopefully beat the borers. Lots to share with friends.

What are the pros? prolific, quick, easy

What are the cons? mildew, aphids

Review:

this plant was terrifically simple to grow, prolific, and delicious. it will be in my garden again next year. my only sadness was that it attracted green aphids which were difficult to eliminate from within the folds of the flowers and quickly contracted mildew. despite the odds, it still yielded a strong amount of large vegetables.

What are the pros? Great Zucchini

What are the cons? Squash borer heaven

Review:

I love these but have learned not to expect more than a couple zucchini per plant. They grow big bushy plants and zucchini that are great tasting and get huge quickly. Best if picked smaller but I have eaten them when they were bigger and they aren't bad. They succumb to squash vine borers almost immediately after I get the first fruit or two though. Even when I have other squash planted these are always the first to go. It should be mentioned that all the other squash I plant are winter squash they they just prefer any kind of summer squash, but my pumpkins don't usually make it long after these.

What are the pros? Outstanding Flavor

What are the cons? None

Review:

The first squash to mature fruit in my garden by a week or so. Although they weren't the most prolific squash I grew, their flavor made up for it. Simply awesome nutty/earthy flavor that made all my other squash seem bland by comparison. No rot near the blossoms either, which my patty pan varieties seemed prone to get. Really no cons except that I wish I had another plant or two.
