Cocozelle Organic Squash Seeds

(P) Pkt of 20 seeds
Item #05863-PK-P1


Tender and ultra-delicious

Days to Maturity: 45 from direct sow; Synonym: Cocozella di Napoli.

For well over 100 years, gardeners have been enjoying the super-tender, delectable flavor of this Italian heirloom, and we are delighted to bring the seed to you in certified organic form. An open-pollinated summer squash that may be picked young or allowed to mature to full size, this zucchini is everyone's favorite for rich, satisfying flavor.

Perfect for small-space gardens, this bush-form plant takes off early and begins setting fruit abundantly. Dark green with lighter green stripes, the little zukes look as good as they taste, and you can begin harvesting them at just an inch or so long for baby squash. You never tasted such succulence.

If you decide to let them reach maturity, be sure to harvest them before they reach longer than about a foot. (This typically takes only a month and a half.) You will find Cocozelle a great multi-purpose zucchini—steaming, frying, slicing, baking, freezing, and even canning are all terrific with this powerhouse of flavor.

To extend the harvest, be sure to pick some of these zukes young. This will stimulate new fruiting, keeping you in great eating for a few extra weeks. You will love Cocozelle—we guarantee it.

Best variety of zucchini

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

We grew three plants (by accident) and were overcome with zucchini all summer. This variety is very prolific, but also very tasty. It’s great for both baking and cooking. It’s lower in moisture than other varieties of zucchini, so it holds its shape in stir fries and is easier to prepare for baking. We’ve already decided that it be a permanent addition to our garden in the future.

By far my favorite Park Seed offering. Have grown this seed for a couple of years now, and it's done well each time, with high yields, beautiful, delicious fruit.

Love this Zuc!!!!

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

Always dies well, always germinates and does not have problems as other squashes. Also can get really large and bares a lot of fruit on one plant.

Easy to grow & beautiful!

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

My first time growing my own food. This one was easy. I tried to start the seeds indoors early March, but those plants didn't make it. Seeds I direct sowed outdoors are gorgeous and strong!!
