A Southern Italian heirloom that easily beats hybrid zucchini. San Pasquale fruits are dark green with light green stripes and slight ridges. Grown mainly in the provinces of Naples and Salerno.
Very long rather than fat fruit that are more dry than most zucchini. Produces seperate male and female flowers. This is one of the preferred zucchini for flowers to stuff, grill or fry. Depending on your growing zone, the cultivation period is from May-October. It seems the name San Pasquale comes from the traditional planting time, May 17th, the Feast day of San Pasquale Baylon. He is also the patron saint of cooks and pastry chefs.
