Ratings & Reviews


We had fantastic success with these seeds. All seeds planted grew into vigourous vines/bushes which continued to pump out tasty zucchini well through the summer season.

The early germination rate is very good and the plants appear healthy and growing well. First fruits starting to appear.

Perfect Zucchini's

These grew fantastic and gave many zucchini until they got a mould fungi issue but that was because I don't think the position I put them in gave enough sun. This year I'm planting them in full sun. The ones I did get where perfect and tasted great
customer review from 7/12/2015 22 March 2016


Easy to grow, seems quite hardy and very prolific. Very happy and will plant again next year, along with the golden arch for something different.
