Neutral Farmerdill On Jan 10, 2013, Farmerdill from Augusta, GA (Zone 8a) wrote:

"Improved cocozelle type with more defined striping, open plant habit, resistance to powdery mildew and slender, attractive fruit shape. Looking for an eyecatching zucchini? Dario certainly won us over in our trials. Fruit remains slender, measuring 1” in diameter even at 7” length and holds well after harvest. Upright plants are single-stemmed with an open habit for easier picking. Dario’s flavor is sweeter than most cocozelle." High Mowing Seed
