I'm trying to think of what I'd like to grow in the future, I know I want to try mini cukes and peppers, but I'm not finding many posts on anyone having grown zucchini? I've been searching so many pages and sites, has anyone done eggplant with much success?
I think the huge huge leaves and clusters would take a very large area for squash(zucchini is a squash to me as well). Also, one would have to pollinate the flowers.. It would most likely require supplemental lighting due to the huge vines and large leaves.
I agree with Corinne. I’ve only planted zucchini outside and the plants get huge. But with a Farm it could be feasible. Rialle tried a mini pumpkin (I think) in a Farm and had some success but had to terminate and intends to try again. I’m thinking that as a plant overall pumpkin and zucchini are similar. But could def be wrong, I haven’t looked it up.
I have grown zucchini in the seed starting tray and then I planted it outside. It did well in the aerogarden for its short period inside. It would take up a lot of room to grow one inside and harvest from it. I agree you’d need to use a farm. They are huge. That said, zucchini’s grow so fast, you’d quickly know if it was a success or not.
