Description for San Pasquale (lighter zucchini in images):

Cucurbita pepo - A richly flavored and productive zucchini from Southern Italy that easily beats watery hybrid zucchini. Fruit is dark green with light green stripes and slight ridges. Produces a lot of male flowers which are great for stuffing or frying and the female flowers hold well enough to pick small fruit with flowers still attached. Yield is consistent all season long.

Description for Black Beauty (darker zucchini in images):

Cucurbita pepo - This highly productive bush-type heirloom from the 1920s takes up little garden space. Dark green, shiny fruits with tender skin are very versatile in the kitchen. Can be steamed, sautéed, added to soups, omelets, and breads, made into relish, and eaten raw in salads or with dip.
