Black Beauty Summer Squash Seeds Cucurbita pepo Description: This heirloom zucchini was first offered to American gardeners in the 1920s, and was quite well known by the 1930s. This variety popularized the use of zucchini because of its easy growth and excellent quality, and received the prestigious AAS Award in 1957. Other Common Names: Duration: Annual Days to Maturity: 62 Seeds Per Oz: 200 Height: 18 to 24" Spacing: 36 in to 48 in Planting: Direct sow outside after danger of last frost. Plant seeds about one-inch deep and 2 to 3 feet apart in a traditional garden bed., and 1 inch below soil surface. Feeding: Squash plants are heavy feeders. Work compost and plenty of organic matter into the soil before planting for a rich soil base. To germinate outside, use cloche or frame protection in cold climates for the first few weeks. Water: Water deeply. A steady water supply is necessary for the best quality fruit. Water deeply once a week, applying at least one inch of water. Shallow watering promotes shallow root development that is detrimental to yields. Don't judge the moisture content of the soil by the dryness of the surface, if the soil is dry four inches down, water. If the soil is moist at that depth, the plants will be fine. Wilting in scorching, mid-afternoon sun is normal for summer squash. They will recover when the sun goes down. Insects and Diseases: The major insect pests that attack summer squash include cucumber beetles, vine borers, and squash bugs.
