Cocozelle Zucchini Squash Seeds

Cocozelle Zucchini Squash Seeds


Cocozelle Zuchinni, also known as 'Cocozella di Napoli', was introduced to North American gardeners in 1890 making this Italian heirloom a garden staple., The plants are bush-type producing long cylindrical zucchini fruit that are dark green colored and striped in lighter green. Their flesh is greenish white and firm. Although we prefer to harvest the fruit when they are about eight to ten inches in length it is reported that in Italy the fruit is eaten quite young, when it is hardly the size of a cucumber, sometimes even before the flower has opened, when the ovary, which is scarcely as long or as thick as the finger, is gathered for use. Harvesting this way deprives the plant of their undeveloped fruit, forcing them to continue to flower for several months most profusely.
