Product Description

 The original Eight Ball type summer squash from Italy...

55 - 60 days, Open Pollinated. Also known as Round of Parma. Round, dark green zucchini type squash grow abundantly on vigorous plants. Terrific flavor and continuous production on a bush type plant. Most tender if picked at around softball size, but we like to let some get bigger for stuffing and grilling, which they are perfect for. We were first introduced to this variety by a former neighbor in Idaho, who was originally from Italy. She begged us to grow her some because she could not find it to buy anywhere, and she had fond memories of it from her childhood. That was more than 15 years ago, and we have been growing it ever since.

We have a 6 plant minimum for shipping purposes. You can mix and match varieties to meet the minimum.

We ship every Monday and Tuesday, from late March through late May, to the 48 contiguous states. We schedule your shipment to arrive just after the last frost date for your area. We will send an email from our farm (lazyoxfarmyahoo.com) within 24 hours of receiving your order informing you of your shipping date. You are welcome to change the shipping date. Just let us know when you want them.

Our plants are sustainably raised in our own potting mix. We use only organic fertilizers and sprays if needed. We have been growing and selling plants since 1997.

Our plants are shipped in individual 3" deep pots. They are ready to be planted out in your garden.

We package our plants with extreme care so they arrive undamaged at your doorstep. Each plant is tucked into its own padded sleeve. The soil in each pot is covered so it will not spill out. A plant tag identifying the variety is included with each plant.

We will start accepting orders for 2020 in early January. We will start shipping in late March, weather permitting.
