Zucchini Black Beauty is a classic summer squash variety renowned for its dark green, glossy fruits and exceptional flavor. This heirloom variety produces abundant yields of tender zucchinis, perfect for grilling, sautéing, or adding to salads and pasta dishes. With its compact growth habit, it's an excellent choice for gardeners with limited space.

Planting Tips:

  • Sow seeds directly into the garden after the danger of frost has passed and the soil has warmed.
  • Plant seeds 1 inch deep in well-prepared soil, spaced 24-36 inches apart in rows or hills.
  • Ensure plants receive ample sunlight and consistent moisture throughout the growing season.
  • Consider providing support for the sprawling vines to keep fruits off the ground and maintain air circulation, reducing the risk of disease.


  • Zucchinis are best harvested when they are 6-8 inches long for optimal tenderness and flavor.
  • Use a sharp knife or pruning shears to cut the fruits from the vine, taking care not to damage the plant.
  • Regular harvesting encourages continued production throughout the season.

Storage and Preservation:

  • Store harvested zucchinis in the refrigerator for up to one week.
  • Zucchinis can also be preserved through freezing or canning for long-term storage.

Enjoy the bounty of fresh, flavorful zucchinis from your garden with Zucchini Black Beauty!
