- A traditional Italian favorite of the summer squashes that is harvested extra early.
55 days. Also known as Cocozelle Zuccini. Traditional Italian favorite often harvested extra early, but still very good when left to a larger size. Appealing dark green with lighter broad stripes; excellent flavor. Will grow up to 12" long. Not actually a true zucchini, this summer squash has a slightly larger blossom end.
