Min Qty: 30 seeds
Description: Italian heirloom bush variety from the 1880s, harvested early for best flavor, but still good when larger. Dark green fruit with light stripes. Try the flowers, dipped in batter and fried.
Planting Instructions: 50-60 days. After the danger of frost has passed, and the soil has warmed, sow seeds 1/2" deep, in loose, rich soil in rows, plant seeds 4-6" apart in rows 6' apart. Thin seedlings to 2-3' when they have 2 sets of leaves. Squash are generally heavy feeders, so fertilize as they grow to improve your harvest. For a fall harvest, plant in mid-summer. Harvest fruit before it gets too large as it shuts production down.
