A favourite variety with a wonderful sweet flavour all its own. It gives large yields of tender light-skinned fruits. Zucchini seeds like a sunny, sheltered position and rich soil.

Sow 12mm (half-inch) deep direct in final position. Sow 3 or 4 seeds in clumps, later thinning to the two strongest seedlings. Allow 100cm (3ft) between rows and space plants 100cm (3ft) apart. Keep the plants well watered and prepare the soil well by adding organic material and complete fertiliser.
