Zucchini, Mutabile (Organic)

Cucurbita pepo. Dark Green. 50 days.

A zucchini destined to be a favorite of home gardeners and small market farmers alike! Mutabile is everything we need in a zucchini. Early, deep green fruit form on sturdy bush plants that are resistant to powdery mildew. The real benefit of Mutabile is that it yields consistently each week, staying productive for the whole season, where the hybrids go big and then fade out mid-season. Plants have an open canopy with few spines. Powdery mildew resistance helps keep production and fruit quality high late into the season. We discovered this variety in Switzerland at Sativa Rheinau, a biodynamic seed company and our heads were again turned to Mutabile by Turtle Tree Seed in New York.

Seed produced by Avoca in Corvallis, Oregon.

Geographical Origin

Sow indoors in 2-4” pots May through mid-June. Transplant into the garden 1-2 weeks after sprouting to 2-3’ centers and 3’ wide rows. May also be direct sown when soil is warm. Young plants are sensitive, we recommend row cover to protect from frost and insects.

Seed Saving

To save seed, let fruit mature on plant until autumn when they’re giant. Harvest and scoop out seeds. Rinse off and dry. Isolate from other squash of the same species by at least ½ mile.

    I have been growing this variety for several years now. It is a proven staple in my garden. Light tender skin and very tasty. Excellent raw or grilled. I highly recommend this variety which stays productive for the rentire season.

    Tested in a community garden with 2 other PMR varieties in Sequim, WA. This was the best for resistance and production and flavor. Highly recommend!

    Great for PNW coast

    This is hands down the best zucchini I have grown in PNW garden. I live on the Olympic peninsula coast and this plant is robust, highly productive right into October, and is the most mildew resistant I have grown – important in our damp marine environment. The plant description leads you to believe that it is out-produced by hybrids in the peak of the year, well not in my garden. This plant outproduced everything all the time and one plant kept my wife and I in zucchini and I had to give away from the other plants.

    Grew well in my tiny backyards my townhome, also grew well in my parents more spacious yard. Showed good mildew resistance in both areas and a long production with tasty fruit.

    I have been growing Mutabile for a few years. Great flavor! Almost a nutty quality to them. Seeds stay small so they make great bread. Always the best producer of my garden. My all time favorite.

    Grew them in a community garden with lots of powdery mildew around. They resisted it long after others succumbed. Also love the taste and growing habit. Best I’ve grown.
