50 days. C. pepo. Bush type. An American bred open pollinated zucchini is one of the best for home use or market. Dark green smooth thin skin covers dense white tasty flesh. Spinless stalks, strong roots, drought tolerant and open form (for easy harvesting) out performs many hybrids. Attractive plants have a silver pattern (so don’t freak out thinking its powdery mildew). Very good disease resistance.
