Description

TONDA NIZZA (or in France Ronde Nice) is a round European heirloom zucchini with fine flavor and a delightful pale green color. Delicate thin skin and smooth tender texture make this a premium selection for the home garden (markets can't offer such delicate squash as it can't take the rough handling). Makes a wonderful stuffer if picked at baseball size or pick very small while blossom still attached and saute whole with blossom stuffed! Also so very tender it is good raw on the crudite tray. Once they hit golf ball size they will quickly (almost overnight) balloon, so pick before they get too big. Or let them get a little bigger and use them as soup bowls for cream of squash soup! (You can decoratively cut the rim in a zig zag pattern after scooping out the insides neatly and using for the soup.) A good steady producer as long as you keep it picked. This is my absolute favorite summer squash! 45 days. 25 seeds.

GROWING TIPS: Popular summer and winter squash have basically the same growth requirements. They are all heavy feeders requiring rich composted soil and specific organic amendments depending on type. Gardeners all have their "secret recipes" for squashes - everything from beer to milk to who knows what! It is fun to experiment! Wait until the soil is warm to plant seeds, or transplants. Once established, the winter squash will remain productive until cooler weather sets in. In fact, you can successfully grow squash right in your compost pile! Be on the lookout for squash borers! They enter the vine at the soil line and leave a pile of "crumbs". They will decimate your plants, so when you see evidence of them, use a knife to slit the vine until you find them, remove and crush them, then use sarah wrap to close the vine and bury the vine up to a point where it is whole. It will root again at the point and you should be fine. Most winter squashes are large, vining plants that require lots of room to grow. Fruit are harvested when they are mature and have hard rinds. Winter squash fruit can be stored in a cool, dry location for 1 to 6 months.
