Description

The Zucchini that Thinks it's a Mini Watermelon!

Ready in just over a month, or let them mature to larger size and harvest at your leisure!

40 days for baby squash; up to 56 days for mature squash

Irresistibly cute and so delicious, Poquito is THE zucchini you've got to try this year! This little charmer is ready to eat in just over a month, when the oblong, green-striped fruit is barely 3 inches long and filled with tender, succulent flesh. Steam it, slice it, skewer it, grill it -- and what you don't pick right away you can allow to keep growing, keeping you in continual harvest for weeks!

Poquito looks just like a tiny watermelon, weighing only a few ounces but packed with flavor and texture. Just wash it off and slice it, skin and all, for the most delicious kebabs you'll ever taste. Chop it raw for salad, slice it lengthwise and pop it on the BBQ to acquire some grill marks and smoky flavor, or steam it for just a few minutes to bring out all the juicy goodness of the flavor. This is a zucchini you will always find a clever new way to present on the plate!

Best of all, you don't have to harvest it all at once. Leave some on the plant to keep growing, and use them as you would other zukes. They're especially good for stuffing when they mature, the striped skin adding a bit of extra plate appeal!

Poquito grows on spineless bush-habit plants, so it saves space and simplifies harvest. You don't have to get out the elbow-length gloves to get near this plant! And that's good, because once you taste this scrumptious zuke, you're going to be out in the veggie garden every day searching for new Poquitos to put on the dinner table! Pkt is 15 seeds.

Fun to Grow

This shopper rated the product 4 out of 5 stars

The plants have been a little slow to start off for me, maybe not as vigorous as other varieties. The fruit are compact, fun to grow. I am just getting fruit on the plant in early July. Very excited to try them on the grill.

Good grower

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

I love the seeds that have been ordered in the past. I was amazed how quickly my order arrived. Last year when I couldn't find my round zucchini you had them available. I was thrilled.

Great squash

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

This is a mild-flavored squash, on a bush that tends to sprawl more than other bush types. Even at the larger size, the flavor is still mild. I've been slicing it very thin and sauteing in a little olive oil and herbs, sometimes with some bacon, onions, and/or tomatoes. Although we have had a lot of rain this past month, I see very little mildew, and only two small squash have rotted on the plant. The squash do have to be monitored if you want to get them while they are small.

Great producer with caveats

This shopper rated the product 4 out of 5 stars

Pros: I have been harvesting these summer squash non-stop. They are definitely delicious and gorgeous to look at. Cons: I planted one of these in an 8x4 raised garden, and it's covered half of the bed with its leaves so it definitely sprawls a bit. I've also noticed a slightly unpleasant smell to the leaves and the squash that I haven't experienced with other summer squash I've grown. Takeaway: Tasty, but be sure to give it space and wash hands after handling!
