Default Aussie Zucchini Cross

A sneak peek at our Zucchini cross and the minor differences that have shown up, which will determine which ones make it next season. This cross is from a Yellow variety here called Gold Rush, which was crossed with pollen from the light green Jade Numbat zucchini. The ribbing and stripes are the main thing we think will make these appealing to growers. In no particular order, these range from all yellow to ribbed and striped. All these zucchini's will be saved for seed this year, currently range from around 30cm up to 40cm.

Very nice! I've grown Gold Rush many times, and would love to see a strongly striped version!
