Zucchini, Rheinau Gold (Organic)

Cucurbita pepo. Golden-Yellow. 55 days.

A terrific yellow zucchini – delicate texture with a light flavor. Thin skin contributes to good eating quality with no need to peel. Smaller plants have an open growth habit and are productive over a long season. The fruit do not grow as large as green zucchini – if you miss a few days of harvest you won’t be greeted with leg-sized fruit, but rather several forearm-sized ones. Throws the occasional green-fruited plant. Rheinau Gold came to us via Meadowlark Hearth and was previously selected in biodynamic conditions by Swiss seed company Sativa Rheinau, for both agronomic traits and eating quality – we are big fans of everything they release.

Sow indoors in 2” pots with good potting soil May to 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. Squash plants are frost-sensitive and benefit from row cover to protect them from frost and insects while plants are young.

Seed Saving

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