ZULU

« Back

ZULU is a hybrid gem squash which has excellent yield potential and fruit quality combined with an early maturity and disease resistances. Fruit are produced on a vigorous, compact plant with short internodes which allows for higher plant densities. Fruit shape of ZULU is round from fruit set thereby enabling fruit to be harvested at a ‘baby’ stage as well as for ‘mature’ production. A key feature of ZULU is the fruit quality with excellent colour retention of the skin compared to other varieties, and the shipping and storage ability.
