Green Tigress Zucchini

40-45 days. Cucurbita pepo. A medium green courgette, harvest Tigress at a diminutive 3" long for grilling, steaming or braising, sometimes with the papery yellow blossom still attached. Tigress produces uniform, smooth, long, cylindrical fruit that holds its fine texture and quality up to 8" long. Disease-resistant and vigorous, it is reliable in cool, damp weather and has an extremely early maturity date. Pick baby Tigress and slice into little disks to sauté in olive oil with diced Shallots and Garlic for a simple summer pasta with freshly grated Parmesan and a crusty baguette. (F1.)

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.
