One bite of this scrumptious zucchini will convince you that you have a new favorite. And if you live in a hot-summer climate, all the better -- Partenon is specially adapted to produce well in high-heat temperatures where others flounder. Big yields, tender-sweet fruit, open plant habit for easy harvest . . . what's not to love about Partenon?!

Partenon takes its name from its nature: it is a parthenocarpic, or self-pollinating, variety, much like a seedless watermelon. It has very few seeds, and what it does have are soft and small. But the real differences are its ability to grow under adverse conditions, its resistance to cucumber beetles (a big pest for other zucchini varieties), and its longer freshness after harvest.

First, the vigor and determination to bloom and fruit in high heat and other stressful growing conditions. Many zukes simply won't pollinate once the temperature climbs above 90 degrees F, and if you live in an area where that can happen even in late spring, let alone summer, your squash crop can really suffer. Partenon avoids the whole problem and sets reliably every time, with each 18-inch-high, 36-inch-wide plant setting about half a dozen fruit.

Second, the resistance to cucumber beetles. This is just a side benefit of Partenon's bitterfree fruit. The chemical that causes that bitterness also attracts cucumber beetles. So by having less of the chemical, Partenon not only bears sweeter fruit, it keeps the pests away!

Third, the extended "shelf life" of these zucchinis. Again, it's all science. Partenon has much lower levels of ethylene, the chemical that speeds ripening (and over-ripening!). So if you pick it on schedule, you'll find that it keeps its texture and flavor longer than other varieties from your garden. Pretty cool!

Partenon is a quick grower, setting long, slender fruit that will simply keep going if you don't pick them at 8 or 9 inches. Dark green and packed with nutrition, they are a pleasure to eat. Give this exciting newcomer a try this season!

Sow seeds 1 inch deep directly into the garden after the danger of frost is past. (The rule of thumb is 2 seeds per hole.) Thin the seedlings to 24 inches apart, or plant 4 to 5 seeds together in hills 4 feet apart and then thin to 2 plants per hill. For even earlier harvests, start seeds indoors and transplant into the garden as soon as the soil warms in spring.

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.

When it comes to the kinds of seeds we offer, we are constantly seeking something new and provide many unique and hard-to-find varieties from all around the world. 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!
