No More Tearful Harvests! This Spineless Takes the Pain out of the Crop!
Uniform, medium-green fruits.
43 days. No more scratched arms or damaged fruit from gingerly poking among sharp spines to harvest the zucchini! Spineless Beauty Hybrid offers excellent yields of uniform, medium green fruit on open plants.
Summer squash ripens during the hot summer months and, thin-skinned, is best eaten fresh. Sow seeds 1 inch deep directly into the garden after the danger of frost is past. Thin the seedlings to 24 inches apart, or plant several seeds in hills 4 feet apart and then thin to 2 plants per hill. (For even earlier harvests, start seeds indoors.) Pick when the fruits are still small (4 to 8 inches long).(P)
