I have some zukes that have EXPLODED onto the scene in the past few days. One is beautiful- Raven variety, dark green and gorgeous. The other is beautiful too- Clairmont variety, but pale green- is that how it's supposed to look?

I'd say it's about honeydew melon green.

Are you sure about the name, Dazie? I did a google search and could not find "Clairmont" Zucchini.

Well, whatever the light green one was, I didn't get to eat it. I sliced it open last night and some creepy crawly had bored inside it and propigated. Talk about heebie jeebies! GROSS!

:( Whatever it was that got into my zuke seems to have taken out an entire plant. What was simply wilted yesterday (I assumed because of the heat) is now yellowed and flopped over today.

Wretched creepy crawlies.

It wasn't one of these, was it?

They usually attack the stems near the ground, not the fruit. But I suppose it can happen.

eew. It looks like the big maggoty thing that was in my squash, and the plant has the earmarks that are described in the article.

Stupid bugs.
