Variety description

Zaphito is botanically a squash but can be used as young fruit like a courgette. The skin is edible too. The fruits should be harvested when they are 8-12 cm long and with a pale green colour. The fruits have yellow flesh. The plants are non-trailing but can grow 1 metre long. The taste is reminiscent of fresh peas.
