Cucurbita Pepo 'Black Magic'

 

Zucchini 'Black Magic'

Strictly speaking fruit, not vegetables (as they contain seeds), courgettes are immature marrows. They are a low growing, spreading plant, that can produce up to 30 fruits and carry on fruiting until the first frost. They benefit from lots of organic matter added to the planting position. Zucchini 'Black Magic' bears dark-skinned, firm zucchini on a compact plant

Propagating by seed

From Early Spring TO Late Spring

Prepare a bed or hill in a sunny site where the soil is fertile. Make planting pockets 3' apart by digging a hole a spade-depth, width and height, and filling with compost and well-rotted manure, then sow a seed on edge in each pocket. at a depth of about 1" after all danger of frost has passed.. Or sow the seeds singly in pots in the greenhouse, and plant out after they have their first true leaves

 

Planting

From Mid Spring TO Early Summer

After seeds grown indoors have their first true leaves, and after all danger of frost has passed, plant the seedlings out into a prepared bed or hill that has been well-manured, at a spacing of about 3' for bush types, and 5' for trailing types.
