We were first year gardeners last year and these did EXCELLENT! They grew so well and EASY! Very happy and will be ordering again! Our only complaint is we couldn't keep up with picking them. Every day it seemed like there was more out there!
We planted 4 zucchini plants (over planted) and we were picking these every day. I think we ended up with well over 60 nice zucchinis through the summer. Froze lots and baked with others!
These are the best zucchini we've ever had. They are very easy to grow, delicious and prolific. Highly recommend.
We bought several varieties of tomatoes, lettuce, squash, zucchini, peppers, pumpkins, Parma onions, basil, oregano, and a few others. Very impressed: seeds were great and explained planting recommendations. I planted early so I had some trouble there, but that was my fault. A friend and I shared one purchase so we weren't overloaded b/c all the seeds were great. My oregano didn't "work" but that had other factors as well. I'm blogging about my garden experience and I will tag Annie's on it.
