Unique appearance for easy recognition.
Distinctive, slender fruits are yellow with faint white stripes and light-green blossom ends. Harvest young at 4-6″ for unusually delicious, nutty flavor and firm texture. Vigorous, high-yielding plants. NOTE: Under certain stressful situations, such as hot weather, Zephyr fruits can show some variability in the amount of green at the blossom ends. In addition, sometimes the first one or two fruits produced can be green-striped.
• Edible Flowers: Blossoms bear a mild, squash-like flavor and are great stuffed and fried, or sliced for use in soups, omelets, salads, and pasta dishes.
