Burpee Squash 'Burpee Golden Zucchini'
These bright, glossy golden fruits have a distinct zucchini flavor. Use them fresh, cooked or baked in breads.
To avoid insects and diseases, keep your garden free of weeds. Remove and destroy any mildewed or diseased leaves and stay out of the garden when the leaves are wet to avoid spreading diseases from plant to plant. Avoid planting zucchini in the same spot each year.
Growing Tips for Homeowners:
With medium-long (6- to 8-in./15- to 20-cm) fruit, these zucchinis have a bright golden color and are ready for harvest in less than two months. Plant in full sun, water every couple days (trying to avoid the leaves) and fertilize when fruits begin to form to increase your yield. Zucchini is versatile. You can steam it, boil it, stuff it or bake it. Remember, it can be sliced and frozen if you harvest more than expected.
