Zucchini 'Black Beauty' has dark emerald fruits that are most tender at 8 inches or less. This American heirloom was a All-America Selection winner in 1957.
The zucchini flowers can be stuffed with cheese and fried. We usually pick a few of the male flowers to eat if there is a lot.
Sowing Zucchini Seeds:
Sow seeds in hills 1 inch deep after the last frost date. Space the hills 4 to 6 feet apart. Thin to 2 plants per hill. Full sun.
