First squash Harvest

First squash Harvest

Here is a pic of my cocozelle zucchini. This is a great beginner squash plant. It does not get too big and is a good producer. These cocozelle zucchini are between 7-8 inches long.

I’ll let you know what we do with them tonight but most likely I will just saute them in some olive oil with some garlic and pepper flakes. YUMMY!

  1. Tammy,
    They look beautiful! Zucchini also are great grilled on the BBQ. They look similar to a variety I have grown in the past called "Romanesco." I didn't plant any this year since sadly, unlike your cocozelle, they sprawled in a big way.

  2. Christine,

    I love grilling zukes. I was debating between the cocozelle and romanesco when i was picking my plants but my nursery told me that romansesco get BIG…like 10 feet long and i did not have much space. Cocozelle only are supposed to be 2-3 feet (mine is more like 4) and supposed to be a better producer BUT romanesco is supposed to have this wonderful nutty flavor that I'd really like to try.
