Packet of Summer Squash Zephyr Seeds

Zephyr is a distinctive hybrid summer squash variety, producing slender fruits that are predominantly yellow in colour with light green pointed ends.

Best harvested when the fruits are 10 - 15cm in length, they have a delicious nutty flavour and firm texture.

The flowers are also edible.

Grow as per a courgette or marrow. Zephyr has a very strong bush habit, with good resistance to ZYMV.

General Summer Squash Growing Tips

From seed to harvesting, you can plant and start picking in as little as 6 weeks. Summer Squash plants are prolific and will grow in abundance almost anywhere - chances are you will end up giving away many of the vegetables to family and friends because you will have more than you care to eat.

  • We recommend sowing into pots and then planting out after the risk of frost has past. Fill a 9 cm pot with good compost and place the seed approx. 1cm deep, water and place then pot in warm position.
  • After a week you should see the first leaves emerging. Move to a light but frost free position and grow on until big enough to plant out.
  • Before planting hoe the garden patch to loosen and aerate the soil. Once planted water in well, then water again every other day until the plants are established.
  • Avoid using too much fertiliser, Squashes are so robust that over fertilising the plants could cause them to take over your garden, whilst producing only a few fruits.
  • Prune the plants once the vegetables begin to develop. Remove offshoots from the main vines and some of the leaves to let in more sunlight. This diverts plant energy to the developing vegetables.
  • The main problem you may encounter is mildew - usually from September onwards.
