Reviews of zucchini Zheltoplodny
Anna, 29 years old, Ufa
This is the second yellow-fruited variety that I plant. The first, unfortunately, fell ill with powdery mildew and I hardly saw the harvest. It was written on a bag with seeds of this variety that it is resistant to powdery mildew. I planted it with germinated seeds directly into the ground. The seedlings even had to be thinned out. The bushes bloomed very quickly, and many fruits were set. The zucchini grew rapidly. I plucked them small. But if the zucchini outgrows, then it remains long and does not thicken like some varieties. I liked the taste of these zucchini very much. He is very gentle. Zucchini keeps well. They lay in the pantry all winter and not one rotted. Spins work well with him. No wonder it was written on the packaging that the variety is universal. I definitely recommend it.

I grow this variety for the first time. Seed germination is good. I even had to pull out some, otherwise it hurt a lot. They began to bloom and tie quickly. Zucchini of a cheerful yellow color, grows 2-6 pieces on each bush. Planting them, I could not even think that there would be so many of them! We collected zucchini until mid-September and no longer knew what to do with them. We stored them first in the garage, then when it got colder, we brought them onto the balcony. I gradually used them, but some lasted until the New Year. I liked the taste. They are dense and juicy. There is no such wateriness that is found in zucchini. I liked this variety, I will still plant it. He has good germination and yield. And its small bushes can significantly save space in the garden.
