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 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.

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.

    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!
