Piccolo Zucchini

55 days. We're beyond excited about this rare, adorable Zucchini that looks like a tiny Watermelon! Each tasty fruit is egg-shaped and deep green with high-contrast pale green stripes, best picked when just smaller than a tennis ball. Enjoy them cooked or raw, as their flesh is mild and sweet. The highly productive, spineless, compact bush-type plants are great for smaller gardens. (F1.)

One packet of about 12 seeds
