A very prolific hybrid, can produce zucchini faster than you can eat it. I believe I read that this is the squash most commonly planted by farmers.

Will grow large squash with regular watering. Very susceptible to powdery mildew. Give these plenty of room to spread and plant them away from other vegetables that are susceptible to powdery mildew.
