Zucchini, Midnight Lightning (Cucurbita pepo), packet of 10 seeds, organic


Family:  Gourd (Cucurbitaceae)

Annual.  55 days to maturity.

Midnight Lightning is a bush zucchini that produces long, narrow fruits of exceptional flavor, colored very dark green, almost “midnight black.”  We found these to be fast-growing, insect and disease resistant and not very spiny (which is a nice feature when reaching in to clip off that first long thin zuk you’ve been hankering after all spring).  Sow seed about 1 inch deep in the spring or summer garden.  Space hills 3 to 5 feet apart.  Thin to 3 best seedlings per hill.  Plant produces long fruits that taste best when picked at early stage.

10 seeds/pkt., Certified Organically Grown

    If the zucchini grows too large, wait until visiting relatives leave their windows down on their car, and sneak the zucchini into the back seat, hiding them under the overdue electric bills and ratty magazines. Hey, golly, what kind of magazines is Uncle Fred reading, anyway?  Wait until I tell Aunt Margaret!  If you live in England, a country famous for its love of bland foods, you can hollow out the oversized fruits and stuff them with cherry tomatoes, onions, garlic, summer savory, salt and other yumminess and bake in the oven to produce a popular treat known as “marrow.”  Otherwise, consume zucchinis in the early stages of development, lightly steamed or stir-fried, with a little garlic and tamari.  Boy oh Boy.
