Organic Raven Zucchini

Out of stock
"Cucurbita Raven (USDA Organic) Zucchini, Cucurbita pepo 'Raven', displays a dark green skin that contains high levels of lutein, a highly effective antioxidant. Open plants are high-yielding, producing glossy, smooth, cylindrical fruit that get 7 or 8 inches long and about 2 inches in diameter. The fruits grow very abundantly all over plants that are just 2 feet high and 3 feet wide. You should not set your zucchini plants in the garden until the temperature in your area is at least 65 degrees Fahrenheit. Zucchini should be planted in a mound that is approximately two feet in diameter. You can add well-rotted manure to the soil prior to building up the mound. Love Zucchini but just don't have the space for those big, sprawling plants? Raven Hybrid is the answer -- a truly compact variety that improves every stage of the process, from saving space in the garden, to simplifying harvest with spineless fruit, to delighting your taste buds with fruit much meatier and more flavorful than older varieties! This is the perfect variety to eat raw, or lightly steamed it and bring out the most of the fresh, full flavor."
