I couldn't have a garden without 'Ronde de Nice'. I don't even bother planting long zucchinis any more, and during the winter, 'Ronde de Nice' is the only variety I buy in the markets. The speckled green, shiny round fruits have a delicate, non-watery texture when cooked and are number 1 in their category for flavor (delicately perfumed, nutty). A bonus is the bounty of vigorous male flowers which are as much to appreciate in the kitchen as the fruits. Enjoy them in beignets, stuffed, in risotto--the possibilities are endless.
Short-vining plants produce all summer as long as you harvest promptly. Harvest the fruits at all young stages: with blossom still attached up to 3-4" in diameter.Our French heirloom seed is produced organically by a small seed farm in central France. Its production process is monitored by France's rigorous Ecocert program which is a standard throughout the European community. The seed ships with both an Ecocert certificate and a phytosanitary certificate.
