Botanical Interests Organic Summer Cocozelle Squash
Called Cocozella di Napoli in the 19th century, Cocozelle is much more ornamental than your average zucchini! An old Italian heirloom, it has very long dark green fruit with light green vertical stripes. This striped Italian beauty is the racecar of the vegetable garden - it is fast growing with a compact bush habit and is very prolific. The baby zucchinis are a delicacy in Italy, harvested when they are only 1" in length. Easy to grow just about anywhere, the plants can be grown in any sunny spot in the garden or in a large container. A dozen ideas for preparing are listed inside the packet.
When to plant outside: RECOMMENDED. Spring, 2-4 weeks after average last frost and when soil temperatures have risen above 60 degrees.
When to start inside: Not recommended. In very short season climates, 3-4 weeks before average last frost. Sow in individual peat pots for direct planting.

About Botanical Interests
Curtis and Judy met while waiting to interview for the same horticultural job and soon found they shared a boundless enthusiasm for gardening. Botanical Interests began out of their mutual passion and personal desire for better quality seed and more informational tools to help and inpire gardeners.
"We wanted a level of purity and quality that wasn't easy to find," recalls Curtis. So they searched out the highest quality seed available and began their business in 1997, in the spare bedroom of their Colorado home. The business objectives they established then still hold strong for them now: to inspire and educate gardeners; to provide high quality seed to their customers; and to create an enjoyable work place for employees.
Over the years, Judy and Curtis' family has grown along with their line of seeds which now attracts and pleases customers nationwide.
