Zucchini

 

Where do they come from?

The zucchini plant was around in ancient Greece and the people did not think so highly of its nutritional value so its first use was as a container to carry and transfer food and water.

When should they be planted?

Zucchini is planted from March until June.

Climate

The zucchini plant prefers the ground where it has good enough drainage and it needs a lot of water to grow.
