Black Beauty Zucchini
50-60 days. A wonderful dark-green turning to nearly black when fully mature. Best harvested at 8". Semi-spineless with an open growing habit.
Good freezing, but best served fresh from the garden.
Contains 25 heirloom seeds
I forgot to add that Black Beauty zucchini freezes well and makes the best blueberry zucchini bread I've ever tasted.
Black Beauty Zucchini is easy to grow, highly productive, resistant to most diseases and tastes great raw, grilled or sauteed. It's my favorite zucchini and one I grow every year. Here in my part of Arizona (Zone 8b in the Mohave Desert) we have long, hot, very dry summers and this zucchini revels in them. I generally find just two or three plants will keep us and some of our neighbors in zucchini all season long.
Got this variety especially to combat powdery mildew since we are coastal. So far it’s held up better than our other plants and is producing well with a compact footprint for the whole plant.
These plants were so vigorous and produced so many squash, it was beyond expectations. Plenty to eat all summer, filled the freezer with 20 packages and fed several friends families as well.
I purchased Mary's Heirlooms black beauty zucchini seeds and planted them a long side other seed bought elsewhere. Mary's Heirlooms seeds far exceed the other seeds planted. I continuously buy seeds from here and they have yet to disappoint. Plus my seeds always come with a free seed packet! I can respect a small company who takes pride in their product and appreciates their customers.
