Lemon Zucchini (Cucurbita pepo)
Lemon Zucchini (Cucurbita pepo): Beautiful zucchini displaying a gorgeous bright yellow colour and shaped like a lemon. It should be eaten when still immature, like all zucchinis, when they skin is still tender and smooth. They become orange when fully ripe and get blistery skin which signals the right time to collect the seeds. Its flavour is very much like all other zucchinis.
The plant is early, very productive, and particularly resistant to pest attacks. Great for self-production gardens, and small businesses as well since it is super eye-catching. Ready in 50 days from transplant.
