Product Details

The fruits of 'Bush Baby' are adorable little Zucchinis, dark green with gray-green stripes. True baby Zucchini, these darlings grow 4-6" in only 35 days from transplant. The compact plants are ideal for small-space gardening or containers, and have an open form making harvest easy. The delicate, nutty flavor of this Squash shines through when steamed, sautéed, or stir-fried. Pick when 2-3" and steam with sweet Onions, then coat with butter and sprinkle with Dill.

Every state has agricultural regulations that restrict the shipment of certain plants. We're sorry, but we cannot ship this item to the following states: Georgia, North Carolina, New Jersey.


The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.


We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. We also ship a wide range of containers and planters, tools, supplies, fertilizers, garden wear, garden decor items, as well as indoor decorations like wreaths and dried bouquets when available. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the green Shipping Details box for each item. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at the expected time of delivery.


We guarantee to ship plants that are in prime condition for growing. If your order is damaged or fails to meet your expectations, we will cheerfully replace or refund it. Please contact our Customer Service Department at 1-800-503-9624 or email us at [email protected]. Please include your order number or customer number when contacting us.

Planted early May in zone 7b. I now have at least 6 full sized zucchini; I missed the part about harvesting when they were 3” and my first collection was a big 10” zucchini. The plant has a lot of flowers and is doing exceptionally well.

Wonderful plant!

We grew these last year, and had a bountiful summer filled with so many wonderful zucchinis. We had no problems at all with this plant and will definitely grow again!

Not worth it

Ordered 3 plants only 1 survived the shipping. No support for the stems, they were tossed around inside the box till their stems were severed. I should have known better to purchase plants online, good thing they were only $7.00 and not anything more expensive.

A +

Sweetest summer squash I have ever tasted ! Our family loved this variety. The vines grew 3 1/2 ft. and the squash was still tender at 7 inches long.

Very few female flowers

The plant grew well. There were a lot of flowers, but, nearly all of them were male flowers. Despite feeding every two weeks, the plant yielded only two zucchini.
I'll try another kind next year.

When the weather is warm and settled, choose a planting location in full sun with rich, fertile soil and good drainage. To reduce soil-borne diseases, plant Squash, Pumpkins, Watermelon, and Cantaloupe where you haven't grown them in the past 3 years.

Continuing Care

If rain is scarce, water your plants deeply and regularly (weekly, or more often in hot, dry weather).

Mulch plants to keep them evenly moist and weed free. Side-dress with compost or 5-10-10 fertilizer when the plants are about 6in tall and again when they start to bloom.

As fruits begin to form on the plants, thin them to two fruits per vine.


Harvest the fruit of Summer Squash and Zucchini while they are still small (6-8" long) and tender by cutting, not pulling, the fruit from your plants. Harvest Winter Squash before the first frost, also by cutting, leaving a couple inches of the stem attached. Then cure its fruit in a warm, well-ventilated location for 7-14 days before storing.

Harvest Cantaloupe when fruit breaks away easily from the vine.

Harvest Watermelon when the tendrils on the stem near the melon are brown and dry. 

Harvest Pumpkins before frost, when at least half of the fruit has good orange color. Leave 4-5" of stem attached.

Store Winter Squash and Pumpkins at 50-70°F out of direct sun.
