Golden Zuccini

596 Views 4 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  det28
These appear to be the same as the regular ones, in taste, but are a golden color. Now I don't know much about them, they were bought as a flat of seedlings, but after they began to yield the plants began to rot. We had a very small yield of these and then---rot!

We've cleaned them out, hoping it isn't something that willspread to the rest of our squash. Any ideas about these "golden zuccinis?

(It might help if I were to say we've had a summer that was cool, cloudy and rainy through July!)

Are you sure the plants rotted? Sounds more like that pesky squash borer attacked. I've had some minor evidence of burrowing this year but the plants are still going; I started them very late which is one way of outsmarting their life cycle. Again, I hope wiser minds will pipe up. Tin foil wraps, cutting out offenders (never worked for me--always killed the plant), etc. are standard defenses.
