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. You can mix and match varieties to meet the minimum.

Within 24 hours of receiving your order, we will e-mail you with a shipping date that we choose based on your last frost date. You are welcome to change the date to any other shipping week. Just respond to the e-mail and tell us when you want your plants. Our first shipping date is late March, weather permitting. We will not have plants available before then.

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, and 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 ship every Monday and Tuesday, from late March through May, according to your location or your request. We currently ship to every state except Hawaii and Alaska.
