Default Cocozelle Zucchini

I grew two plants this year. Planted the seed in April. I have been getting a steady supply of zucchini. They are a very hardy zucchini and seem to be able to withstand the onslaught of squash vine borers. Even though they show some damage they are still producing.
Your plant looks great.

Cocozelle is a variety we tried last year and enjoyed quite a bit, hope you enjoy it too. Another plant is in our garden and just starting to flower (it followed spring lettuce). Our other 2 zuke plants this year are Dark Green Bush (grew the past 2 years) and Cube of Butter. This is the first year of Cube of Butter, it has 5 baby zukes, 1 just flowered and 1 will be ready to harvest in a couple days, the other 3 will open over the coming days.

plant looks great - my female flowers seem to be yellowing and have not pollenated as of yet - the plant has this strange "grit" all over, strange for me, that is

the smaller cocozelle died last week - the remaining one has yet to produce female flower that did not suffer from blossom end rot - I guess inconsistent watering and possibly a dense potting mix may have caused an issue
