Zucchini: Yellow Ball

Plant Type: Bush
Uses: These are particularly good when stuffed and baked as the skin is tough and they don't easily fall apart. Can be sliced then fried, BBQed or roasted.
Growing Conditions: need well drained, good soil. water regularly in summer.
Pests and Diseases: can be affected by powdery mildew late in the season, but this is usually after the main flush of fruit anyway.
