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.

Review:

While I wanted to grow a few different varieties, with Black Beauty there is no need for me. Reliable zucchini produces quickly and early for me. Even in first year soil with no amendments, this variety is reliable. I grow it any year I can. The plants in full sun, with good irrigation and soil, will consistently put out 1-3 zukes every few days. 4 plants is enough for the neighborhood; literally. I love juicing these in summer when the cukes have pooped out in the CA heat. Neutral flavored juice high in B vitamins, and vitamin A, keeping your skin pretty with all the sun. They also make a wonderful light, yet cooling summer salad when spiralized for noodles with fresh basil, tomatoes, and bell peppers when its too hot for cooked pasta. And oh, this squash is a necessity for grilling in CA. We put them on shiskabobs, in tacos, in grilled veg salad, you name it. Also wonderful for zucchini bread. Get ready to leave baskets on your neighbors doors with this variety.

Review:

I have grown this squash for many years. It is highly productive but you do have to take precautions for squash borers. To prevent borer problems I do rotate the beds every year and use floating row covers during squash borer season (June here.) I start my plants in a small greenhouse and put them out as soon as it is warm enough. I have read others who say they have bee pollination problems and I do too early in the season but hand pollination is sooo easy. Hand pollinate until the bees show up in warmer weather. One you get past the pollination and borer issues these will produce throughout the summer.. I let mine grow fairly long and shred them with a mandolin into zucchini noodles which can be dried or frozen and used through out the winter.

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.
