We offer certified organic seed for excellent varieties of zucchini. Zucchini originated in the Americas and was brought by early explorers to the Mediterranean where it has come to be associated with Italian cuisine. The word zucchini comes from the Italian zucchino, meaning a small squash. Zucchini has good water and fiber content, and nutrients -- folate, potassium, and vitamins A and C -- mostly concentrated in the skin. Legendary for their prolific production at the height of summer, no garden or farm-stand is complete without them!
