How and when to Harvest Zucchini in Terrace Gardens

Updated: Sep 10, 2021

  • Zucchini can be harvested at the moment they reach a usable size about 6 to 8 inches in length

  • Generally zucchini is harvested when its tender and they have good flavor when they are young. Also smaller fruits have superior taste

  • Zucchini can grow 1 to 2 inches a day

  • Zucchini that grows very large will be pulpy, seedy, and bitter flavored.

  • Carefully cut fruits off the plant with a knife or pruners when zucchini are between 3 and 8 inches long. Leave about two inches of the stem to remain on the fruit.

  • To help them store longer, harvest with at least an inch of stem still attached.

  • If grown correctly and healthily, you should be able to harvest zucchini multiple times in one growing season.
