Ronde De Nice Round Zucchini

50-55 days. Cucurbita pepo. These stocky plants need a sunny 3' in all directions, but you won't begrudge them the space once you've experienced this round French heirloom. Each plant yields many jade-colored Zucchini over a long period. Harvest Ronde de Nice from golf ball to softball size, while still pale and milky green. Unique in the garden and wonderful in cuisine, it is ideal for braising or stuffing whole, slicing and baking with cheese or in cream sauce with Basil. It is just sublime grilled: slice thickly or use small, whole Squash; brush with olive oil and grill. Turn occasionally until fragrant, lightly browned and sweet and juicy. (OP.)

A reliable warm weather producer, Zucchini should be sown as transplants 3 to 4 weeks before the last frost date. Or it is best direct-sown when the soil is above 50°F. Thin skinned, they store poorly, so harvest right before use. Keep picking to ensure continued production. Avoid baseball bats~enjoy them small and sweet in ratatouille, stuffed and baked, grilled or sautéed with pasta. Bee friendly. Deer resistant.

Average seed life: 2 years.
