Cucurbita pepo
ZUCCHINI-COCOZELLA is an Italian heirloom bush variety (Summer Squash) from around 1885, grows fast and prolific, creating a fine flavoured vegetable similar to the Italian Striped Zucchini with a dark green and pale green striped body. Its firm flesh and excellent flavour make it good for steaming, frying, baking and slicing in a salad. Pick when roughly 15cm long before the flower falls off. Plant in full or part sun and keep aerated to prevent mildew. Pick regularly to encourage more fruiting.
