Product Overview

Cucurbita pepo

This striped Italian beauty is the race car of the vegetable garden. Fast growing, compact bush habit, prolific, and racing stripes to boot!

A treasured 1800s Italian heirloom, 'Cocozelle' has very long, dark green fruit with light green vertical stripes. Also called 'Cocozella di Napoli', it is a compact bush type plant that can be grown in any sunny spot in the garden or in a large container. Italians traditionally harvest summer squash when very young, about finger size. See inside of packet for cooking ideas and recipe.

Variety Info

Light and dark green striped fruit. At their peak, 1½" in diameter, 8"–10" long. Will eventually turn yellow if left on the vine.

Sowing Outside

RECOMMENDED. 1 to 2 weeks after your average last frost date, and when soil temperature is 70°–85°F.
