Dark Star Zucchini
Big healthy bush plants give big yields of very high-quality zucchini. Bred for organic conditions and dry-summer climates. This variety was the result of a collaboration between farmer-breeder Bill Reynolds and the Organic Seed Alliance. The goal was an open-pollinated zucchini that could compete favorably at market with the modern hybrids without sacrificing flavor and eating quality. They got that and then some. The big root system and strong constitution that makes it drought-tolerant also gave it better cold-hardiness than other zucs. It can even survive a light frost.
I don't recommend this for cloudy or wet areas--try Black Beauty instead if you live in areas with summer rain and rich soil. 20 seeds
