What are the pros? Easy to harvest!

What are the cons? None

Review:

I can't tell the difference between this and another zucchini in terms of taste, but I LOVE HOW IT GROWS. Plenty of space between the leaves so you can easily look down and see the zucchinis growing and pick them before they become giant monsters.

What are the pros? Flavor, easy growing

What are the cons? none

Review:

Excellent variety - great taste, had no diseases, multiple fruits on one plant, very easy to grow. Plant stopped producing when temperature was over 100 degrees for few days, but after that went back to normal. Need to be watered every day in zone 9. Saved seeds for next season!

What are the pros? Prolific and healthy plants

What are the cons? Plants are HUUUUUUGE

Review:

I've gown this var before from another seed co.& it's my favorite. But this year I bought from Baker Creek. I planted 7 Fordhook Zucs (started indoors), These have been more prolific this year for me. Been harvesting Zucs for 3 weeks now. I harvest @ 7-9 inches. So far I've gotten 62 zucs from 7 plants! At the size I pick them, they avg about 0.8lb/zuc which is a total of 49.5lbs, & I have plenty more coming! In my area, the store sells them for 1.79/lb this time of year - that's almost $89 worth of zucs, more if you figure farmer's market prices. I planted so many because last year was a bad year for Zucs for me & because I dug a new 300 sq ft garden (in-ground, not raised bed) which I didn't plan for so I had to fill some space. All 7 zucs went in the new garden. Planted in loosened native soil with organic granular fert & compost in the hole. What's strange, though, is that I have not found Squash Bugs or eggs, usually they are here by now. No complaints, just strange.

Huge plants and fruits
Easy to Grow 3.0
EarlyMaturity 5.0
 

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.
