Black Beauty Zucchini
Each packet contains 10 seeds. Store seeds in a cool, dark place.
When to sow: Spring or summer after frost danger has passed. Can be sown earlier indoors or under glass, but germination requires warmth and light.
Where to grow: Warm, sheltered, well-drained site in full sun. Can be sown in trays for transplanting.
How to sow: Sow two seeds 15cm apart, in groups 1 metre apart, or one seed per pot, and cover with 1cm of firmed soil. Lay seed on side when sowing, and do not push into soil.
Care: Keep seedbed evenly moist during germination period.
Ready to eat: Usually in 30-50 days.
Tips: Avoid wetting foliage as this can cause fungal and mildew problems. Gently twist fruit to harvest from plant. Picking mature fruit will increase yields and prolong the fruiting period.
