Golden Delight Zucchini is a hybrid, yellow zucchini that offers an excellent disease package with improved productivity. Plants grow upright and have an open growing habit, which allows for quick and easy harvesting. Plants are also semi-spineless which makes for more comfortable harvesting as well. Golden Delight Zucchini produces fruits that have a striking yellow color from bottom to tip. Fruits may be harvested small for miniature presentations, or allowed to reach optimal size around 7-8″ long. Resistance to powdery mildew and mosaic viruses allows for increased plant longevity and longer harvesting windows.

Zucchini may be direct seeded or transplanted, although we highly recommend direct seeding. To ensure a good stand, we recommend planting zucchini seeds every 12″ along the intended row. Once plants emerge, thin plants to one every 2 feet. Zucchini can be susceptible to plant diseases like downy mildew and powdery mildew if leaves receive excess moisture. As a result, we recommend using drip irrigation on zucchini to reduce plant moisture and feed plants more effectively. During periods of heavy rainfall, using a fungicide like Liquid Copper can help to alleviate disease pressure as well.

Zucchini are a crop that will require multiple harvests throughout the growing season. Regardless of variety, squash will have better flavor and texture when harvested on the small end of the spectrum. We recommend harvesting every 2-3 days to ensure no fruits become too large and unpalatable. When zucchini plants cease production, remove the plants from the garden to prevent any fungal spores from overwintering and becoming a problem in future years. Proper crop rotation is extremely important with all zucchini varieties to reduce disease and pest pressure.

    They’re amazing & you can watch them grow since the orange color doesn’t blend in with the leaves.

    Okay, I admit I just opened and planted the seed packet today. But included in the packet was a cute little plant marker! I didn’t even know how much I wanted this until I saw it!! I told everyone on a FB group to which I belong. Such excitement all around! That being said, I have confidence these will be awesome. Hoss has never let me down before.

    This is a pretty looking and very uniform zucchini. Plants were compact and easy to stake up. I found them to be very productive in the summer heat,but our fall planted plants dropped off pretty sharply on production once cooler weather hit. Pollination went down noticeably in the cool weather too where other varieties in the same row stayed consistent. If you are in a hot weather area or are growing these during the height of summer they do fantastic. For cooler conditions they are a bit disappointing. Flavour was good and texture was pretty good. I would grow this again if I needed a golden zucchini variety for summer heat. I think that’s it’s special niche. Overall it’s a good solid variety.

    I gave the golden delight variety a try in my summer garden. It produced well and continued blooming in the scorching heat. They have a unique taste with a hint of honey when grilled, sautéed or fried. I will plant them again in the spring.
