Zucchini, San Pasquale (Organic)

Cucurbita pepo. Dark Green, Light Green Stripes. 55 days.

A richly flavored and productive zucchini from Southern Italy that easily beats watery hybrid zucchini. Similar to Zucchino Striato di Napoli. Fruit is dark green with light green stripes and slight ridges. Produces a lot of male flowers which are great for stuffing or frying and the female flowers hold well enough to pick small fruit with flowers still attached. Good choice for the garden as San Pasquale is productive but not overwhelmingly so – you get a ton of squash to eat and share with the neighbors but not so many that you have to secretly leave them on their doorstep. Yield is consistent all season long. Original seed sourced from the Italian seed producer Emanuele Larosa Sementi.

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.
