"When we started our breeding program, there weren't any organic hybrid zucchini or open-pollinated medium green zucchini varieties available. We set out to breed and select for what growers needed. Cha-Ching is a productive, medium-green zucchini with good tolerance to powdery mildew. Medium, glossy green fruit is speckled with light green, and is slightly tapered with a small blossom. Plants are very open in habit, making for easy harvest and increased air-flow to keep down disease. Harvest at 6-8 long or smaller; fruit tends to put on girth as it grows. " High Mowing Seed
