Forget the new “Eight Ball” hybrid. There already was an heirloom version. These are a rich, darkgreen color, round-shaped and very flavorful; perfect for home or markets. Vigorous plants produce well. Italian seed.

Review:

This is the first year I grew this variety and I'm very impressed. The plants were a little slow to get going but once they took off they really took off. Right now I have about 10 squash on one plant. Each one about the size of a small soccer ball if you can Envision that . The plant is vigorous but not overly large - it doesn't take up the entire garden like some squash varieties. It seems to be disease resistant, at least it didn't develop any problems in my garden and it is not fussy about water at all. We had a extended period of very wet weather followed by very dry weather and it performed great in both.Definitely one of my yearly squash varieties from now on. I'm in Connecticut, Zone 5B

I grew up in Uruguay, we call them “zapallitos “ I plant them every year and share with friends. They are good stuffed or cooked like a fritata.

Review:

We grew two types of zucchini this year, this type and the patty pans and these were far superior. Both were very prolific, but the round beauties were giving us so many fruits we had to eventually tear out a few plants. They grow pretty big at least ours did (im a big user of crab shells, kelp, and fish fertilizer and humic acid) So plant them at least 3 feet apart or more from each other. We had one squash hide away so well that when it was picked it was almost the size of a medium pumpkin, and it was still tender and not too seedy! We will always have these in our yard every year.

Review:

This is one of my favorite squash to grow. I plant a few varieties each year and this is always the first to produce. I like the cute little round shape too. I've been plating these every year from a seed packet I bought about four years ago. Don't be cheap like me - treat yourself to new seeds sometimes. =D

What are the pros? Easy to grow, great tasting

What are the cons? Subject to borers

Review:

What a great little squash plant. Planted a couple of these seeds in late April (new Jersey). By july, we were picking. Occasionally, one of these will hide among the leaves and stems, and if you don't see it, it will just continue to get bigger and bigger. Typically I pick these at between 12oz and 16oz (slightly smaller than a softball), but I've already had a few go well over 3 pounds. We made two of the larger ones into stuffed squash for my family of 6 and fed us twice. Have to remember to wipe down the stems early on with Deem oil to prevent the borers from gaining easy access, but no complaints about these.
