Only a lazy gardener does not grow zucchini on his site. They are very unpretentious and undemanding to care for. Most varieties only need regular watering for normal growth. But there are also varieties that may well do without it. This is very convenient for those gardeners who come to the site only on weekends. Zucchini Casanova F1 is one of these varieties.
This variety belongs to early maturing hybrids. Its semi-leafy bushes have large dissected leaves of a dark green color without spots and blotches. Casanova zucchini resembles a cylinder in its shape. It's sleek and long. At the same time, the zucchini do not tend to be overstretched. Even if you forget to pick a ripe fruit, it will not outgrow... The color of mature zucchini is heterogeneous: white dots of medium size stand out on the light green skin. The fruits of this hybrid can on average weigh from 0.9 to 1.5 kg. Their soft cream-colored flesh is quite dense and tasty. This allows them to be successfully used not only in cooking, but also in canning.
A distinctive feature of this hybrid variety is its drought tolerance.
Despite the fact that the variety is very undemanding to care, you should pay attention to the soil before planting it. The ideal place for planting Casanova F1 will be the beds on which they grew:
If the seeds are not planted after these crops, in a new place or after other varieties of squash, the soil must be fertilized. This is done in the fall when digging a vegetable garden. Organic fertilizers are ideal:
- horse dung;
- bird droppings.
To enrich the soil, the use of compost and green manure gives very good results.
This hybrid variety can be planted in two ways:
- Seed in open ground. In this case, the landing is carried out in the month of May. The optimum sowing depth is 4-6 cm.
- Growing seedlings. This method is used to obtain an earlier harvest. It is better to start preparing seedlings a month before the recommended planting, that is, in April.
This hybrid responds very well to loosening and feeding. If the soil was prepared before planting, then these procedures can be omitted.
