'Black Beauty' zucchini (Cucurbita pepo) is an heirloom summer squash prized for its crisp, white flesh and dark green skin. This early-maturing zucchini is ready to harvest in just 48 days and produces an abundance of slender fruit, notes Bonnie Plants. While it is traditionally grown in the vegetable garden, it can be grown in containers as long as it receives adequate light, moisture and nutrients. This warm-season veggie cannot withstand frost and must be planted after all danger of frost has passed

Growing Black Beauty Zucchinis  (Cucurbita pepo) practically grow themselves and are useful in many recipes and preparations. Try growing Black Beauty zucchinis for their intense colour and prolific production. This variety of summer squash takes 45 to 65 days to harvest. Once the plant starts producing fruit, they will appear regularly all season long, until cold temperatures kill the plant. Sow the seeds outside 2 to 4 weeks after the date of the last frost in a sunny location on hills of prepared soil. Germination is usually in 5 to 10 days with average moisture and soil temperatures of at least 15C. Plant 2 to 3 seeds per mound. The history of Black Beauty zucchini indicates they were developed for the compact bush and heavy production. You won’t be disappointed with the heavily bearing plant and the flavourful attractive fruit.
