How can you tell when Italian Zuchinni is ready to pick? I grew some Italian zucchini this past year, the huge long curly type, but have no idea how to tell when they are ready to pick and eat. I think they look super but want to be able to try eating and promoting them.
When to Pick Italian Zucchini

Harvest is approx 55 days from planting.
You should harvest the zucchini when they are 4 to 6 inches in length for best flavor.
Allowing the zucchini to get to large on the vine will lower the production of other vegetables.
Don't let your zucchini get too big. I would say 10"
