Description

Cocozelle Zucchini Summer Squash

A rich flavored zucchini that is deep green when young, but ribbed with yellow stripes when mature. Also known as Costata Romanesca.   Originally from Italy; called "Cocozelle di Napoli" in the 1800s.

History

Summer squash is one of the oldest known crops - it was found in 10,000 year old archaeological sites in Mexico. Its cultivation in the southern and eastern U.S. and some highlands of Central America dates back to at least 2700 BC. The remarkable diversity was already present in pre-Columbian times. 

Uses

Fresh, grilled or sauteed.

Growing Tip

Sow 5 seeds per hill, 4' apart. Thin to best 2-3 plants. Squash seeds dislike cold soil. It's better to wait until the soil is warm to plant the seeds.
