Questions about round zucchini
My 8 Ball zucchini plant has consented to give me a zucchini. It's gotten fairly big, about 4 inches wide and 5 inches long. My question is, how do I know it's ripe? Do I wait for it to get round rather than oblong? Or are 8 Ball zucchini in the field (vs. in the showroom) not always billiard ball round?
I hope this plant will eventually give me more zucchinis.
