Positive Farmerdill On Jan 28, 2007, Farmerdill from Augusta, GA (Zone 8a) wrote:

A Lebanese type from Golden Valley Seeds, which offers this description: "The plant has a bush that is semi-erect. The fruit is cylindrical. The interior is greenish white. Exterior coloring is light green. The size averages 18 cm. in length." About a week behind Basima, Alexandria is a bit slow out of the gate. Production lags behind at this point to Profit (way back) Basima,and Ishtar. It has an excellent uniform cylindical shape. Prettiest of the group. In all fairness I have never grown a zucchini of any kind that will match Profit for production.
