Here is the Dark Green Zucchini, Cucurbita pepo. This is a classic type of zucchini and a very good producer. As you can see in the video they can get absolutely enormous. This bush early type zucchini can make very large plants and need a lot of room to grow. We found them to produce as many as a dozen fruits on one plant! It is best to pick them at about 8 inches long for fresh eating or you can let them grow full length and are great for frying and soups. The seeds can be eaten as well and roasted just like pumpkin seeds. Open pollinated 40 to 80 days.
