Fantastic grower!
Texas Gardner from TX wrote on January 27, 2020

Started them inside under a grow light and a heat mat. All the seeds germinated. They are growing like crazy. Already transplanted in larger pots, I am looking forward to placing them in the ground (Mel's mix soiless raised bed). The only problem? I was not counting on all the seeds germinating and I have too many plants! A good problem to have.

The perfect zucchini for my garden!
Angie Tran from BC wrote on February 13, 2017

Polination has always been a problem in my Pacific Northwest garden. So many zucchinis were lost in early and late season, and even at the height of summer when the bees were not that active. I was so happy to have found Paternon last year. I grew it under a home-made hoop house, and every female flower grew into a beautiful fruit (it of course took an extra day or two for the fruit to get to an usable size, at the beginning and end of growing season, but I never missed any zucchini!). The plants kept producing and producing, and the fruits taste good, too. They had very few seeds, even when picked at a larger size. The only possible downside is that the fruit skin is on the thicker side (that never bothered us), so if you like thin-skinned fruits, this variety might not be for you. As for me, I'm definitely growing Paternon again! It might very well be the only zucchini I'll ever need!

First Crop for me

I love to grow Zucchini unfortunately the location I moved to, hasn't allowed me to grow much because of all the squash beetles in my area. I don't use pesticides so I normally just manually spray off or pick off bugs if we get any. Normally after a harvest of about 5 zucchinis per plant, My plants are struggling. This particular variety however, because it's less bitter (bitter is what the beetles like) doesn't attract them as quickly and I get a whole 2 months before the beetles decide to take it over. From starting from seed, the plants only take about a month to mature and then it's zucchinis left and right. I ended up growing 6 plants in my zone 7b and had to give about half of them away because we had so many. They went into production earlier than my friends who grew different varieties! Will definitely be growing again in the spring!

Amazing

I was looking for a plant resistant to beetles and this one fit the bill. High yields of tender zucchini makes this plant ideal for my area which can get rather hot in the summer. I will be adding these seeds to my "must have" each year. I can't say enough about this variety.
