Here on the farm in the Northern Willamette Valley, the stalks reach about eight feet tall to the tip of the tassel and produce three to four large ears each.

Can also start seed indoors 3-4 weeks before transplanting. A very old pumpkin / squash variety. These do not look like a normal pumpkin.

The bush-type plants of 'Black Beauty' zucchini are early and very productive. Although you can use this summer squash at just about any size, we start picking fruit when they are about six to eight inches long by two inches in diameter and dark green in color. We prefer them at this young and tender stage when they are excellent lightly steamed, sautéed, or stir-fried. They reach a black-green to almost black at maturity.

Best harvested (our opinion) when the fruit is five to six inches long and still tender. Mature size is 12 to 14 inches.
