description for "Summer Squash: Cucurbita pepo 'Tricolor Zucchini'"

'Tricolor Zucchini' is a custom seed blend from Renee's Garden that combines 'Clarimore,' 'Golden Dawn' and 'Raven.' It offers and easy way to grow 3 different colored, extra-fancy zucchinis. Plump pastel green 'Clarimore' is creamy and tender stuffed or baked; glossy dark green 'Raven' is sweet and succulent steamed of sauteed, and the buttercup yellow fruits of 'Golden Dawn' are delicate and nutty. For succulent texture and best flavor, harvest zucchini when no more than 5 to 6 inches long. Frequent harvesting keeps plants producing tasty new fruits instead of maturing fat, tough, huge ones. Steam, stir-fry or grill sliced zucchinis and sprinkle with fresh parsley, dill, basil or thyme. Try the tasty blossoms sauteed or stuffed and baked. - edited by dtd pbcouchman
