Heat Tolerant Greens: Varieties for the Hottest Summer Months | The Seed Hopper Blog from High Mowing Organic Seeds

rganic Ali Baba - HEIRLOOM HMS crew favorite! Vigorous plants produce 16-25 lb oblong fruit. Hard apple-green rinds are perfect for shipping and storage. Superb, sweet flavor with a fine-grained crisp texture. Ali Baba will win a spot in any melon lover’s heart! Unique skin and light on seeds. (Citrullus lanatus) Days to maturity: 100 days

Organic Costata Romanesco - HEIRLOOM This Italian zucchini wins every taste test based on its unique, slightly nutty flavor and exceptional texture. Tender, gray-green skin and prominent ribbing also give this Italian variety a distinctive appearance. Great picked at 6" or smaller with the flower still attached and fried whole. (Curcurbita pepo) Days to maturity: 54 days

Organic Cocozelle - Tasty Italian variety! Dark and light green striping is less defined than Dario, but shows much more contrast than Costata Romanesco. Flavor is slightly nutty; milder than Costata but more flavorful than most zucchini. Evenly shaped, straight fruit with very slight ribbing over the lighter green striping. Bush plants are mostly single-stemmed. (Cucurbita pepo) Days to maturity: 58 days
