55 days. Zucchini are notorious for playing hide-and-seek (and winning)! Emerald Delight was developed with a more open growing habit, to make it easier to spot those elusive, tasty squash. They are also ready for harvest about a week before other types, and plants are resistant to powdery mildew, zucchini yellows and mosaic virus. Home-grown squash is first-rate, and one of the most versatile of vegetables. Enjoy it raw with dip, in salads or on sandwiches. Add to soups, omelets and breads, or make into relish.
55 days to maturity
For optimum flavor and quality, harvest at 3" long
