Gardeners' Notes:

My wife and I really like Magda. We had the first harvest today 51 days after planting seeds. The plants are large, vigorous, and very productive. We think the flavor is much better than other zucchini type varieties I have grown in the past.

We really love this squash. The flavor is excellent, production is good, and the fruits are very attractive. Have grown it for 3 seasons now and will continue to do so as long as I have room for squash.

We live in west central Alabama. This is an excellent squash... so much so that it is the ONLY squash we now grow. It is very fruitfull, early to mature so far, 3 years now, has NO squash bug issues and the flavor is meaty and nutty. It holds its shape when cooking better than any other squash and freezes very well.

UK Grows ok fruit tasty but not as disease resistant as other Lebanese varieties such as Clarita or Clarion. Seems to be rather attractive to slugs

This hybrid is a Cousa (Lebanese zucchini) variety. Beautiful, uniform mid-sized 4" fruit have a creamy green color and succulent, nutty, white flesh. Magda is early and very productive over a long season. Maturity 50 days.

Very prolific and reasonably uniform. A very good squash in its class, but I still prefer Clarimore.
