50 days. If you haven’t tried Mediterranean Summer Squash yet, you don’t know what you’re missing! Unlike our rather bland summer varieties, Magda is full-bodied, tender, and almost nutty. And the plant is so productive, beginning the season early and then bearing steadily over a long time. This lovely Middle Eastern type is not only delicious, but economical and easy to grow!
Magda Hybrid begins to mature in early summer, just 50 days from sowing. The fruit is shorter and much plumper than zucchini, with a creamy-green skin and pure white interior. Scrumptious fresh or cooked, it makes a hearty meal, and is so strongly flavored that you can enjoy it plain, sprinkled with a bit of salt, or as a meat substitute in sauces.
The plant reaches 3 feet tall and spreads about 6 feet wide over its highly productive season. Best in full sun, it is a trouble-free garden performer you will come to rely upon for big flavor from a summer squash!
Summer squash ripens during the hot summer months and, thin-skinned, is best eaten fresh. 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 15 seeds.
