  1. costata

    Costata Romanesco

    *Heirloom*
    (
    C. pepo) We are odd enough here at Uprising to hold an annual blind zucchini taste off, and I don’t recall Costata ever being unseated from the top spot (which perhaps ultimately begs the question, why do we continue to do this every year?) While its light green color and prominently ribbed fruit might worry some, we converted the majority of our market regulars to the superiority and rich, nutty  flavor of this unique looking Italian heirloom. Big and sprawling plants produce prolifically with an added bonus of very large male flowers for stuffing. We continued to grow the regular straight green zukes for the non adventurous, and those wanting the comfort of  the familiar, but these are the ones we eat at home. Our strain is the most uniform and productive we’ve seen.

  2. dark star

    Dark Star

    (C. pepo) Market growers take note. Here is a zuke to rival all the corporate owned hybrids currently hijacking the zucchini market. Bred by Bill Reynolds of Eel River Produce in Northern CA & John Navazio, Dark Star was selected in part for vigorous root growth to excel in dry farming conditions.  What struck us though is the quality of the fruit, by far the most refined OP zuke we’ve seen with very uniform long, dark green, angular fruit. While not as productive at its peak as some (though certainly no slouch), it sustained its productivity over a longer period than others we’ve grown. Open habit makes it easy to pick. Recommended for the home garden or by the acre. The best OP standard zuke on the market. (Update: during the freakish frosts in Baja in the winter of 2011 Dark Star was likely the only organic zucchini in grocery stores. Just a degree or two more cold hardiness kept it alive amidst a sea of frost killed neighboring fields)
