This is an attractive and tasty squash with a little bit of a nutty flavor. The plants are open and fairly compact, which makes it easier to keep track of the fruit. The fruit is smaller than most zucchini, and takes much longer to get away from you. I haven't had nearly as many giant zukes from this plant. They keep putting out as long as I keep picking.

Green Tiger is a very striking zucchini due to the bold dark-green stripes on a lighter green background. I like my zucchini to not only taste good, but also be very visually striking, and Green Tiger fits the bill perfectly.
