This early and prolific heirloom variety has been exceedingly popular for its very dark green skin and creamy white flesh. The fast-growing plants are very easy to grow and will continue to produce abundantly through the summer if picked continuously. Use in soups, salads, and casseroles. Great sliced thin for dips, battered and fried, or in a veggie lasagna. Freezes well. Harvest while skins are still tender; pick really small for “baby zucchini.”
