Zucchini Romanesco (146-11)

Size *
Current stock: 0


This is a big plant, as are most Italian zucchini. This is a good producer of grey/green fruit with very prominent ribs. Produces lots of flowers over a long season. Can be transplanted for an early crop, but you need to be careful not to disturb the roots. Set 4-5 seeds 1/2 inch deep in a six or eight inch pot 3 weeks before set out date (last frost date). Thin to 2-3. Set out at three foot spacing in rows six feet across. For direct seeding, 4-5 seeds every three feet, thin to 2-3. Keep well watered until germination (5-10 days). 55 days to produce fruit. Pack holds approximately 50-60 seeds.

Really the best ever!

Yes, the plants are large. But oh my, this zuke is sturdy and delicious when it hits the fry pan. Nutty, buttery and can't find any seeds... Maybe I will let 1 or 2 go to baseball bats and see if the seeds are useable. Naw, I'll just keep going steady with Franchi seeds. Life is complicated enough, leave the hard stuff to the Franchi experts.

I've ordered these seeds in the past and this year the results were inconsistent. Only about half of the seeds germinated and the other half rotted in the ground.
