Looking for a summer squash that's mild but still delicious? Try Cocozelle Zucchini!
These Italian heirlooms have been around since 1885, and they continue to impress gardeners with their large size and slightly ribbed skin.
This bush variety produces tons of fruit like zucchini often do, so be ready to share! The blossoms are also tasty, so make sure to harvest squash at six to eight inches in length.
We love the flavor of the Italian zucchini! It is much more productive than the Costata Romenesco but just as flavorful. Even if you miss picking one when it’s young, it is still is surprisingly yummy as a larger zuke . It even outperformed Black Beauty and Fordhook for us. Plant the seeds when the soil is warm and you’ll have great success!
