What are the pros? Produce quickly

What are the cons? Takes up a lot of space

Review:

I grow this variety for earlier zucchini than rampicante will provide. They produce quickly and abundantly, but the plants are huge. I always start 2 seeds in a 4 inch pot and transplant them as soon as possible after the last frost. I do not thin. The result is a huge bush type squash that is 5 feet in diameter. The fruits themselves can hide under leaves and get quite large, but they are still tender and sweet. The plants begin to wither about the time rampicante is coming into its own allowing me to remove them and plant something - many somethings - in their place.

What are the pros? strong plants despite bugs

What are the cons? not as prolific as others

Review:

Third year growing zucchini and first time with this variety. Some critter got a couple of the 1st sprouts that came up and then bugs started eating at the rest but they toughed through it and came out to be some very large and healthy plants. Squash vine borer got one of them and the remaining plants got attacked by squash bugs but gave me enough to use myself and give away plenty to neighbors and friends, especially some really large ones that I didn't see. Next time I will be sure to freeze some. Not as prolific as another variety I have tried but could be due to the bugs.

The zucchinis were HUGE

What are the pros? Prolific, size of zucchinis

What are the cons? Mildew

Review:

I planted my seeds next to a stick hoping it would help it grow. I realized it damaged the stem because the stem was rubbing on it with the strong wind we have here. I thought my plant was going to die because the stem was all open. Once I removed the stick, the plant bounced back and produced HUGE zucchinis!!! 1 zucchini yielded about 10 cups of graded flesh! It might have helped that I had placed large stones against the mounts to regulate the soil temperature. I had also added wood chips on the soil to prevent the soil from drying and I had a drip irrigation system that I was running morning and night. Lastly, the plant was affected by mildew but it affected only the leaves. The zucchinis were doing fantastic!

What are the pros? Easy to grow, grows a ton

What are the cons? None

Review:

Plant was slow to mature. We got too hot. So I thought our plant died. It survived and flourished all summer and into fall. Very hearty plant! Disease and pest resistant. (At least in our garden) Produced tons of squash. I highly recommend this variety and we will be growing it next year.

What are the pros? Taste, easy to grow

What are the cons? none

Review:

This is the best tasting zucchini I've ever had. The plants grew very quickly and require lots of good compost and water. I got several fruits per plant before the squash bugs moved in and wreaked havoc. Luckily, it's early in the season and I can plant a second crop. As others have said, the plants are huge. I spaced mine about three feet apart and that seemed to be enough. The fruits are tender and have a buttery taste. Delicious!
