Heirloom Black Beauty Zucchini is a dark green-black summer squash with straight, cylindrical fruit that was introduced into the US in 1957. It has a fine-textured, greenish-white flesh that is tasty and productive. Best when picked at 6 to 8 inches in length, this ever-bearing bush plant is perfect for any garden.

Plant seeds directly in the garden 1-2 weeks after average last frost date. Sow 3-5 seeds per hill, thinning to a final 2-3 plants per hill. Space between hills should be 3-6'. Optimum soil temperature for seed germination is 65-85 degrees. Or, start seed indoors 3-4 weeks before transplanting into the garden. Transplant to the garden 2 to 3 weeks after your average last frost. Squash grow best in a warm site with full sun. Warm soil is essential to good seed germination and emergence. Using transplants can speed production.
