What are the pros? Insane production

Review:

We were up to our eyeballs in zucchini this year - just from 4 plants. An excellent producer that ultimately succumbed to pests but not before delivering scores of tasty squash, some of which grew to over 12" before we spotted them beneath the leaves. Our best plant sprawled all over - the main stem was 2.5" in diameter and didn't slow down. Will grow again.

What are the pros? Easy to grow in cooler areas

What are the cons? None

Review:

I grew this in zone 3 and put out the whole package of seed over a new garden that used to be a goat and sheep winter paddock. The plants were robust in my cooler season. Although they have a bush habit, the bushes spread out to cover an area 6 x 6 feet. I planted these on May 20th, when the weather warmed up. But June gave us a chill and temperatures dropped to just above freezing a few nights. The squash plants soldiered on and we had baby zucchini beginning the third week of July. Our nights often dip down to 40F but this summer squash doesn't skip a beat. I also planted patty pan squash, yellow zucchini, and black beauty zucchini at the same time. It's now the first week of September and we have yet to harvest either the patty pan, the yellow zucchini, or the Black Beauty. Thi squash is sweet and tender even up to torpedo size. I've grilled the 12 inch squash, made zucchini bites from the larger squash and sauteed the baby squash. I'll definitely grow this again.

What are the pros? Giant but tender and prolific

What are the cons? Takes up a lot of space

Review:

I started my first square foot garden bed toss year (2018) because I finally had my own land and garden space. I had some old costata seeds from 2016 left so I planted them. I very quickly realized that despite my square foot spacing, these plants had their own mission.... To take over as many square feet as possible! All my costata seeds germinated rapidly (despite being 2 years old) and took over 4 square feet each plant. Every 3 days I have another giant zucchini to pick and despite the size, the flavor is wondeful and tender. I plan to grow these every year now.

Review:

This squash was incredibly productive in my garden. I used diatomaceous earth at the plants base during June, and did not have any vine borer problems. The plant was very large for a bush squash, required some pruning because it took up the space of at least 3 standard zucchini bushes.It produced more squash than any C. Pepo type zucchini I have ever grown. It has survived on very little water, due to drought this year. I will definitely grow this squash again.

Review:

This is an amazing variety after the generic "black beauty" I've been used to growing. As usual with my zucchini, I missed a squash for a couple days or over the weekend and found one nearly 2 feet long. I figured it would have tough seeds I'd have to scrape out of the center. To my surprise, it was still tender all the way through! Even the skin didn't seem to have toughened up at all. I'll be growing this every year now.
