Cucurbita pepo

Zucchinis are a popular summer fruiting plant. Black Beauty is prolific fruiting and very easy to grow. It spreads as it gets older and can dominate a 2m+ space by the end of Summer. Don't let this put you off - you can pick up the sprawling parts and gently place them where you'd prefer them to grow.

 

Once it starts bearing, check your plant twice a day. What seems like a baby zucchini in the morning one day can be the size of a marrow the next.
