Eight Ball Zucchini 2016

Possibly my favorite zucchini variety on the planet.  I grow these from seed with great success; when conditions are just right, this plant gives forth a bountiful harvest; the fruit is tender with a delicate flavor; however, not the best for zucchini bread in my experience. As fruit formed this season, my squash balls would wither with blossom-end rot at about 1 to 1-1/2 inches in size.  Easy remedy...calcium deficiency in the soil. Purchased a good calcium-enriched vegetable plant food/fertilizer with immediate results.
