Easy Pick Gold Zucchini

Savor old-fashioned zucchini flavor with an updated style: relatively compact plants with no leaf spines and gold-skinned fruit. These summertime favorites still offer a fast-growing, abundant crop that continues non-stop until frost. Try growing them in 20-inch or larger containers.

The gold color makes it tougher for fruit to hide beneath green leaves, which means you’ll have fewer baseball bat-sized zucchini. For best flavor, pick squash when they’re 10 inches or shorter. Use the fruit like traditional green zucchini — in salads or casseroles, oven-roasted, stir-fried, stuffed, or fried.

  • Light Full sun
  • Fruit size 6 to 10 inches long
  • Matures 32 days
  • Plant spacing 48 inches apart
  • Plant size 36 to 52 inches tall

Some Bonnie Plants varieties may not be available in your local area, due to different variables in certain regions. Also, if any variety is a limited, regional variety it will be noted on the pertinent variety page.

Nutritional Information

This popular garden vegetable has a good combination of nutrients, including vitamins A, C, and K, folate, manganese, and potassium – all important for heart health. Most of these nutrients reside in the skin and the darker the zucchini, the more nutrients, especially beta-carotene and minerals. Like all summer squashes, zucchini are very low in calories and high in water content. Try some squash just lightly steamed rather than fried or in casseroles; you’ll enjoy the maximum of nutrients and retain the low calorie count.
