Sicilian Snake Zucchini 4' 11"(not including stem!)

Craig is on his way to Nancy Powers 3RD grade class of Western Ave. School in Geneva, IL. with this almost 5' Sicilian Snake Zucchini to show them an example of one of the many sizes and shapes of vegetables that they may commonly see on their dinner table. This Zucchini is still supple and ready to slice and grill. The Sicilian Snake Zucchini is a monster of a plant and we have noticed (after growing it for 3 years) that after the birds eat their share of blossoms, and some- less fertile- blossoms fall off, that it is most prolific at growing it's fruit toward the end of the growing season. There are about 3 zucchinis that are this large and the rest range from
@ 1 1/2 ft. to 3 ft. Not Bad!
