Zucchini, Genovese (Organic)
Cucurbita pepo. Light Green. 55 days.
A lovely variety of zucchini from Italy. Fruit is light green with no ribbing and tends to bulb out a bit on the end. As with most Italian varieties, there is some variation in fruit appearance but the flavor is consistently delicious. We especially love the fact that the flavor and texture remain tender and delicious well beyond the “baby” stage, so you can miss picking for a few days and still have tasty zukes for the kitchen. Plants have a fairly large, open bush habit which makes for easy picking. Possibly the most productive summer squash we offer. Skin is fairly thin (no need to peel!) and can blemish easily.
