How to grow zucchini:

Name
Cucurbita pepo.

Family
Cucurbitaceae.

Seeds
Buy Organic Zucchini (Courgette) Seeds from The Green Chronicle (Pay in $US, £, Euro).

Sow zucchini seeds in early spring. Put two seeds in a pot. Later thin out the weaker of the two seedlings if necessary.

Transfer the zucchini plants to a well composted or manured site and position them at least 2 feet apart. Do this when all danger of frost has passed.

To save space zucchinis can be trained up canes.

Harvest regularly when zucchinis are about 5 inches long.
