Falling in love with your vegetable garden this year? Blame it on the Bossa Nova . . . Zucchini, that is! This Caserta squash has just walked off with a 2015 All-America Selection for improved earliness and lateness (meaning that it keeps producing nearly a month after others have quit for the season), terrific texture and flavor, plus charming green-on-green stripes and mottles that make the fruit easy to see among all those shadows and dark green leaves when you're harvesting.

Bossa Nova won't look like any other zucchini in your summer garden. It's more club-shaped than straight, and while it can get very long, you should harvest it at about 8 to 10 ounces for best flavor. The light green base with darker green markings really does make this squash easy to see, and adds some nice plate appeal.

But the real benefit of Bossa Nova is the flavor. The flesh is smooth and succulent, with just the right mix of solids and liquids. The flavor is quite mild and sweet, with no trace of bitterness. This is a gourmet zucchini, but with the yields Bossa Nova gives you, it sure doesn't act like one!

Expect this zucchini to begin producing about two weeks earlier than most others, and to continue three weeks or more at the end of the season, when others have given up. The vine is quite compact, reaching just 4 feet long or so, and easy to train up a fence or other sturdy support if your garden is space-challenged. Versatile, easy -- and did we mention that Bossa Nova is resistant to both watermelon mosaic virus and zucchini yellow mosaic virus? Add to that its earliness, which helps protect it from squash borers, and you've got one tough-as-nails squash!

Bossa Nova is called a Caserta squash based on a type popular in Brazil (which is probably where the fun Bossa Nova name really came from!). Way back in 1949, a striped zucchini called Caserta won an All-America Selection, so Bossa Nova is following a tradition! If you've never tried this type of squash before, you may find it similar to Cocozelles, the Italian heirloom zuke: rich, meaty, satisfying, and a little more distinctive in flavor than our traditional American dark green types. Enjoy!

Sow seeds 1 inch deep directly into the garden after the danger of frost is past. Thin the seedlings to 24 inches apart, or plant several seeds in hills 4 feet apart and then thin to 2 plants per hill. (For even earlier harvests, start seeds indoors.) Pkt is 20 seeds.

Superior Germination Through Superior Science

Park's Superior Seeds Park Seed's humidity- and temperature-controlled seed storage vault Park Seed offers some of the highest-quality vegetable and flower seeds available in the industry, and there are a number of reasons for this.

First of all, we have humidity- and temperature-controlled storage, and we never treat any of our seeds with chemicals or pesticides. Nor do we ever sell GMO's (genetically modified seeds), so you always know the products you're buying from us are natural as well as safe for you and the environment.

Superior Standards - University Inspected

Testing seeds against minimum germination standards To make sure we are providing the best seed product possible and that our customers will get the highest number of seedlings from every packet, we conduct our own germination testing and have quality-control measures in every stage of our seed-handling operation. We hold ourselves to standards that are at or above federal and state standards, including testing specific crops more frequently than recommended by federal guidelines. And in order to maintain our organic certification, we welcome Clemson University to inspect us annually to make sure our organic seeds, which are stored and processed separately, are being handled properly.

Hand Packed By Experienced Technicians

Park Seed has been handling and packing vegetable and flower seeds for 145 years, a history that has given us a great understanding of how each variety should be cared for and maintained throughout every step of theprocess, from collection to shipping.

When packing our seeds, the majority are actually done by hand (with extreme care!), and we often over-pack them, so you're receiving more than the stated quantity.

The Park Seed Gold Standard

Park Seed's exclusive Fresh-Pak gold foil seed packets And many of our seeds are packed in our exclusive Fresh-Pak gold foil packets, which are lined to keep moisture out, so the seeds stay fresher for longer. We carefully pack very tiny or fragile seeds in crush-proof vials to ensure safe delivery to your home. Some of the small seeds are also offered as "pellets" (have a clay coating) to make sowing and growing easier.

Our on-staff horticulturists are ready and available to share their expertise to help you with the success of these seeds, so you can grow a beautiful and productive garden!
