Plant description

Organic zucchini with strong disease resistance. Open plants with low spines provide easy harvests of dark-green, straight zucchinis. High yields and good fruit set, even in variable conditions. Equally suited for field and tunnel. Very similar to Dunja in habit and performance, but Desert's fruits are slightly straighter and more flecked, and plants have added CMV resistance. Intermediate resistance to cucumber mosaic virus, powdery mildew, papaya ringspot virus, watermelon mosaic virus, and zucchini yellow mosaic virus. Organically grown.

It's best to take further precaution against a common insect called squash vine borer. There have been many instances of this insect attacking zucchini plants in this area. Never plant zucchini in the same spot it was in last year. Plus to protect the seedlings from a squash vine borer finding it while it is still weak we suggest you cover the seedling with row cover, a soft, light, white fabric. Support the fabric so it doesn't touch the seedling, and give it some space to grow. Cover the edges of the row cover with soil to prevent the insects from crawling under it.
