Beauty Zucchini Squash
Zucchini is one vegetable that just wont quit! Dark green, shiny fruits with tender skin are very versatile in the kitchen. Can be steamed, sautéed, added to soups, omelets, and breads, made into relish and eaten raw in salads or with dip. This highly productive bush type plant takes up little garden space. Zucchini that get away from you and become very large are great for relish! See inside of packet for recipe.

flavor and quality, harvest at 3" long for baby zucchini,

must be discarded.
