Green Zebra Zucchini is a hybrid variety of summer squash with dark green and pale green stripes. This is a spineless variety with a smooth exterior. Fruits are best harvested between 5-7" long at their peak texture. Productive plants have a bush-growing habit which makes fruits easily visible for quick and effective harvesting. Harvest every 2-3 days for best results. Green Zebra Zucchini are just as tasty as they are beautiful! This is a great variety for steaming and it will make some of the best fried zucchini you've ever had!

Squash may be direct seeded or transplanted, although we highly recommend direct seeding. To ensure a good stand, we recommend planting squash Seeds every 12" along the intended row. Once plants emerge, thin plants to one every 2 feet. Squash can be susceptible to plant diseases like downy mildew and powdery mildew if leaves receive excess moisture. As a result, we recommend using drip irrigation on squash to reduce plant moisture and feed plants more effectively. During periods of heavy rainfall, using a fungicide like Liquid Copper can help to alleviate disease pressure as well.

Squash are a crop that will require multiple harvests throughout the growing season. Regardless of variety, squash will have better flavor and texture when harvested on the small end of the spectrum. We recommend harvesting every 2-3 days to ensure no fruits become too large and unpalatable. When squash plants cease production, remove the plants from the garden to prevent any fungal spores from overwintering and becoming a problem in future years. Proper crop rotation is extremely important with all squash varieties to reduce disease and pest pressure.

I'm on the fence on wether I like this zucchini or not. It's a vigorous plant that likes to stretch out and it had zero disease pressure. It produced into the cool fall weather which I liked. However that's about where the pros end for me. I didn't find it to be very productive at all. Each plant gave at most 1 zucchini per week and a new one doesn't get going well until you pick the old one. The texture is very soft and spongy. This did improve a little as the season went on,but it never got a nice smooth creamy zucchini texture to it. It was more the texture of a summer squash that sat in the fridge for a week. Flavour was mild and nice enough,but not something you would really look forward to in my opinion. For baking and frying they got mushy very quickly. Pickling was definitely better. Overall it's not a bad variety,but I don't feel it can compare to some of the other varieties Hoss carries. It was a little blah.
