Black Beauty Zucchini Squash, Summer (Cucurbita pepo)
Early and prolific, 'Black Beauty' zucchini plants are bush-type plants. We begin picking fruit when it is six to eight inches long, two inches wide, and dark green in colour. We like them best when they're young and tender, when they can be lightly steamed, sautéed, or stir-fried. At maturity, they turn a dark green to almost black colour.
