Dating back to the early 1920s, the Black Beauty zucchini has become a favourite to grow in every gardener’s very own veggie patch. It is a reliable heirloom that produces a higher yield than the hybrid Black Jack zucchini.

This crop is an early season producer with white flesh and a strong dark green skin. As an added bonus, the more you pick, the more it will produce! Flowers can also be picked and stuffed.

Prune leaves below harvested fruit to reduce the risk of diseases. Water plant from below to minimise the likelihood of powdery mildew.
