Not a single season is complete without zucchini. Zucchini "Rolik" is very early. I use small fruits in salads instead of cucumbers. This happens when the cucumbers are not yet ripe. The zucchini taste is excellent, the harvest is always wonderful. I am very happy with the variety.

My profession does not allow me to spend a lot of time in the country. Therefore, I always choose those types of vegetables that do not require careful maintenance. Zucchini "Rolik" has been helping out for several years. Even without constant watering, we always have a good harvest. If pests appear, then we cope very quickly. But, usually, we manage to harvest the fruits before the drought.
