Cocozelle Summer Squash Seeds Description: This heirloom Italian zucchini has been available in the United States since the early 1930s. It stays tender even at large sizes, and its stripes make it a colorful addition to the garden. Traditional Italian cuisine makes use of zucchini by breading and pan frying it or deep frying its blossoms, producing a dish known as "fiori di zucca." Botanical Name: Cucurbita pepo Other Common Names: Duration: Annual Days to Maturity: 55 Seeds Per Oz: 120 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.
