Squash-Desert Zucchini 

Cucurbita palmata

Organic zucchini with strong disease resistance.

Very similar to Dunja in habit and performance, but Desert's fruits are slightly straighter and more flecked, and plants have added CMV resistance. Intermediate resistance to cucumber mosaic virus, powdery mildew, papaya ringspot virus, watermelon mosaic virus, and zucchini yellow mosaic virus.

Days to germination 7 - 14 days
Days to maturity 50 days
Life cycle annual
Plant time/Harvest February - May; and August  - September
Spacing 36"
Sun full sun
Soil temperature 70 F
Optimum soil P.H 6 - 7.5
