Zucchini Seeds

Exceptionally Tasty, Attractive, and Painless

Zucchini is known for its deep, vibrant color, rich texture and flavor, and . . . its painful spines! Luckily the breakthrough varieties featured at Park Seed are all nearly-spineless plants that are easy and painless to harvest. We boast some of the most flavorful and beautiful varieties, with vibrant colors and even stripes. The flowers have their own lush, rugged beauty, too. The most delicious way to eat zucchini is to pick the immature fruit and lightly steam or sauté it to bring out the flavor. Zucchini is at its peak of flavor and texture when it is 6 to 8 inches long: the mature fruit can grow very large, but will become fibrous. Zucchini is delicious all on its own, with a somewhat "meaty" flavor and texture, and it is also a great way to add a fresh flavor to dishes like Fajitas or Ratatouille.
