Back in the 1930's, this zucchini began appearing in seed catalogs and by 1957; it was voted an All-America Selections winner by North American horticultural professionals. Although this is considered a bush plant, it has fast growing and strong vines that may need to be supported for optimum yield. This squash will be a glossy green-black color and have supple yet firm white to pale yellow flesh. Some people report getting fruit as big as 20-30" that are still tender, but they are probably best when picked and eaten under 8". Enjoy Black Beauty Zucchini battered and fried for the classic fried zucchini appetizer. Or use them in soups, salads, lasagnas and breads. You can't go wrong eating them raw or cooked and they also hold up well when frozen.
Days To Maturity: 60-63
- Since squash does not do well in cold soil, plant seed once soil has warmed up in the spring.
- Squash does not like having its roots disturbed. When thinning seedlings, cut the stems of those you are removing rather than just pulling them out.
