Also known as a Courgette, the Black Beauty Zucchini is a delicious and quick crop to have in any garden. Like other squash varieties, the seedlings should sprout within 10-14 days and need to be thinned to one single plant when they display two sets of leaves. During the growing season be sure to keep the soil moist during the day and allowed to drain over night to prevent rot. Zucchini may be harvested early for summer enjoyment or allowed to mature after approximately 7 weeks. Fully matured, the squash should be between 6-8” in length.
