Very easy to grow. This was the first to appear in my garden this year, and has been out-producing the Ronde de Nice 3 to 1. Tastes good, too!

This is new round hybrid from Hollar. Think of it as a golden yellow version of Eight Ball. Tolerant to zucchini yellow mosaic virus and watermelon mosaic virus. 7-21-06 This is the first squash I ever tried to grow that appears to be an abject failure. Planted in April with the Crooknecks, Straightnecks and Zucchinni, It was very slow to emerge. When it emerges it is very slow to grow. All the others have been harvested, but this is still struggling along. 5/28/07 Finally got this one to produce on the second try. I still would not reccomend it, unless you just want a yellow round zucchini. It is a finicky grower here.


This plant has been said to grow in the following regions:
