Zuchino da Fiore means "bred to produce flowers". You may get a few small fruit, but mostly you get lots & lots of very large flowers for cooking. Be sure and pick the flowers every day or two to keep them from setting. Plant is a runner (like most which produce many flowers) so give 5 feet or so between hills. 4 gram packet - about 35 seeds.

Excellent variety! The text indicates some small zucchinis can be produced. I have been growing ten of these plants, five of them for flowers only, the rest for zucchinis. The zucchinis will grow up to medium size and still have minimal seeds, so this is a very versatile variety where I live, near Boston. But you probably don't need ten of these plants! I think this will be the only zucchini variety I'll need going forward, maybe six plants next year.

Growing these blossoms in my garden was such a delight! They are as beautiful as they are tasty, and so easy to grow! By planting just a few seeds in my garden, they produced some beautiful plants that would yield more fresh blossoms than I could handle every day!
I have recipes and pictures of my Zucchino da Fiore pictured here:
I will be planting these seeds in my garden every year from here on out!
