Zucchini, Dunja

Dunja produces plentifully all summer long! Harvest the fruit when they are about 6 to 8 inches long for the best flavor and tenderness.

Zucchini: A category of squash all in itself. While squashes are native to North America, the Italian took a number of summer squash and bred this great category of squashes out of them. With a firm, fresh tasting flesh, Zucchinis tend to give tons fruit all summer. I usually recommend harvesting them young and eating them often as when they get larger they can get a little starchy and tough. Don’t skip eating a couple of the blossoms as well!

Growing Tips: They can get quite large so allow for 18 to 24 inches between plants. They like well-drained soils and I tend to use a bit of light mulch around the base to maintain an even amount of moisture, especially when very young.
