Baby zucchini is all my remaining plant will produce this late in the season. During the high season, plants produce lovely full-sized zucchini. This is ‘Astia’ zucchini from Renee’s Garden Seeds and the plant assumes a smaller profile in the garden. The catalog says it’s suitable for containers.(See catalog description below).
A Mexican friend suggested using the squash blossoms in quesadillas so got lunch today.
Renee’s Garden: Astia Container Zucchini
EXCLUSIVE - Astia is a well-bred French bush zucchini variety, developed especially for container growing and planting in small space gardens. These non rambling, compact squash vines are also highly ornamental with big silvery-green, deeply indented leaves.
Early bearing and productive, Astia bears abundant zucchini near the base of the plant where they are easy to harvest. These uniformly smooth, lustrous, glossy-green zucchini have excellent flavor and are delicious whether roasted, sautéed, steamed or baked.
