Neutral Farmerdill On Nov 20, 2008, Farmerdill from Augusta, GA (Zone 8a) wrote:

One vendor describes this cultivar as follows: "Bush Baby’s fruits are true miniatures and ready to harvest at 4-6". At this stage they are more attractive and "proportional" than full-size zucchinis used as babies. Fruits are glossy and medium dark green with stripes. Semi-open plants are relatively easy to harvest."
