Technology and preparation of seeds for planting

There are two ways to grow a healthy bush:

  • Seedling method.
  • Seed directly into open ground.

As with any vegetable crop, in order to obtain a rich and healthy harvest, it is necessary to prepare the seeds before planting.

It is not necessary to process the seeds of the Kavili variety before planting, but to reduce the germination time, they must be soaked in warm water for five hours, then held in a damp cloth for 24 hours. The seed should swell slightly, but not germinate.

The most optimal time for growing seedlings is last days of April, beginning of May... Seeds for seedlings are sown in separate containers with a diameter of more than 10 cm. The plant does not need a pick.

The first feeding is carried out with complex fertilizers 7 days after planting the seeds, a week later the feeding procedure is repeated.

Seedlings are planted in a permanent place at the age 30 days and buried in the ground up to the first cotyledon leaves. To protect against drafts, young seedlings must be covered for a week.

Seeds are sown in open ground to a depth 4-5 cm, only after the earth warms up by 15-18 degrees. When the temperature drops, the germination of seeds is suspended, so the planted seeds must be covered with a covering material.

Zucchini must be planted in a different place every year in order to prevent all kinds of diseases.

Although the Kavili variety is resistant to diseases, it is not recommended to plant it after cucumbers, pumpkins and squash, as they are prone to the same diseases. Zucchini are planted according to the scheme 70x140.

Soil preparation

Cavili zucchini must be planted in light, fertile soilprepared in the fall.

Zucchini will bear fruit amicably in the beds where potatoes, legumes, onions and cabbage used to grow.

Soil with high acidity is not suitable for this variety. To normalize acidity, it is necessary to add to the soil dolomite flour or crushed chalk.

During the autumn preparation of the beds, the soil is dug to the depth of the shovel bayonet and organic fertilizers (manure, compost) are applied. When fertilizing in the fall, in the spring, the soil will not need top dressing.

In the spring, the earth is dug up and beds are formed. On a lowered section, the beds are raised 20-30 cm from the ground, and 100 cm wide with a slope to the south, in order for the soil to warm up better.

To determine the readiness of the soil for planting, you can clenching it in a fist and dropping it to the ground... If the lump falls apart, then the soil is ready for growing seeds and planting seedlings.


Although the variety is unpretentious in care, all the same, some rules must be followed:

  • Provide open sunny place - with a lack of light, the yield drops.
  • Remove large leaves in time, as the plant may not have enough sunlight due to self-darkening.
  • Zucchini love warmth and when the air temperature drops, young seedlings must be covered.
  • Watering should be done with exceptionally warm water, avoiding drying out of the soil. Watering is carried out around the stem at the rate 10 liters per sq. meter.
  • Top dressing is carried out with complex fertilizers, three times per season - at the time of growth, during flowering and during the formation of fruits.

With an insufficient amount of light and a thickened planting, the taste of the vegetable decreases

Collection and storage

The first fruits are removed upon expiration 1.5 months after planting and, although the Kavili variety does not lose its taste when overgrowing, you should not wait for it to overripe, since overripe vegetables stop the growth and development of the bush.

For quick use, zucchini must be cut at the very base, and for long-term use - together with a long stalk.

Milk zucchini are stored no more than 14 days at temperatures up to + 2 degrees... After a two-week period, the fruits begin to lose their taste, become rough and rot. For long-term storage, it is necessary to cut off ripe zucchini.

Growing squash of Cavili

In order for Caveli zucchini to bring an excellent harvest, they need to provide complete and high-quality care. First of all, attention should be paid to planting operations.

Where is it better to plant

When choosing a garden bed, consider the following:

  • The plant needs a well-lit area that is protected from the wind.
  • Be sure to follow the rules of crop rotation. You should not constantly plant zucchini in one place. It is also not recommended to plant bushes after cucumbers or other pumpkin plants. Excellent predecessors include carrots, onions, herbs. In addition, the plant can be planted after tomatoes, potatoes, radishes.

How to prepare seedlings

You can plant seeds for seedlings in late April or early May. To do this, you can take containers with a diameter of 10 cm. This will help to minimize damage to the roots when moving.

2-3 seeds should be placed in each pot. They should be deepened by 3-4 cm. It is worth growing seedlings at a temperature of at least + 16-18 degrees. Lower parameters can significantly slow down seed germination, which will negatively affect the future harvest.

When the bushes grow slightly, it is important to get rid of the weak plants. You need to transplant to the garden in a month. In this case, a week before this, the plants should be hardened. To do this, the pots are taken out into the street so that the zucchini get used to the new conditions.

Open ground transplant

The beds for Cavalli zucchini should be placed in accordance with the 75x140 cm scheme.Young bushes should be placed in the prepared grooves. In this case, the level of the soil should reach the first leaves.

Important! Zucchini need plenty of sunlight. In a shaded area, there is a risk of a sharp decrease in the yield of the plant and a deterioration in the palatability of the fruit.

For the full development of culture, a temperature regime of + 20-22 degrees is needed. Even a slight cold snap can negatively affect growth rates. Therefore, if necessary, the plants should be covered.

A lack of heat, ultraviolet radiation or the use of cold water for irrigation also negatively affect the condition of the bushes. It is important to take into account that 9-10 liters of water are required per 1 square meter of planting.

Reproduction of Kavili

Zucchini can be propagated in 2 ways:

  1. Seedlings. With this method of reproduction, it is necessary to prepare cups and plant several seeds in them. The culture has a negative attitude towards transplanting, therefore, the plant must be placed in the ground along with a glass, having previously cut off its bottom.
    The plant is early maturing. A week after germination, the plants should be planted in the soil. However, at the beginning it is necessary to harden the seedlings. To do this, it should be taken out into the street for the day, and then overnight. This will allow the culture to get used to the weather.
  2. Seeds. Work can be started already in the first ten days of May. The seeds need to be buried in the ground a few cm, and lightly sprinkled with earth. The first shoots will appear in a week.

Presowing seed treatment

For the cultivation of Kavili zucchini on their personal plot, gardeners can use only purchased hybrid seeds, which are often sold after passing the necessary processing. Therefore, no special training is required. However, some people prefer to treat the seeds with a special nutrient composition Tyramine before planting. In this case, they will not need to be pre-soaked, since this procedure will only contribute to the washing off of this composition.

Diseases and pests

This variety is characterized by good resistance to diseases and harmful insects, but if grown incorrectly, it can suffer. The following diseases are dangerous for a plant:

Peronosporiosis - signs of the disease are large spots, first white, then brown on the leaves and a dirty green bloom on their back, the leaves dry out and break off. For treatment, Tsineba, Zaslon, Oksikhom are used.

Anthracnose - symptoms are dirty yellow spots on the leaves, their twisting, dying off, light pink dents on the fruits. For treatment, Bordeaux liquid is used, a suspension of copper oxychloride. For prophylaxis in the fall, the site is cleared of remaining plants, adhere to the rules of crop rotation, and follow the planting scheme.

Cavili can infect such pests:

Spider mite - Symptoms are subtle white dots on the leaves and a thin cobweb on the back. To get rid of them, use a tincture of onions, red pepper and laundry soap, Spark, Confidor, Fosbecid, and less often Karbofos.

Melon aphid - they can be found on the back of the leaves, ovary, stems. You can destroy insects with Karbofos. As a prophylaxis against spider mites, you can plant marigolds (black shaves) nearby, from aphids - regularly weed weeds and remove plant residues in the fall.

Reviews of the Kavili zucchini

Planted Cavili and Parthenon. Kavili is very compact, early ripening, prolific, tasty. I planted both for 2 years and will plant this year. Stores in the winter did not work. For a family of 3 people with a bunch of unsuccessful relatives, 4 plants are enough, 2 of each variety. STILL GETTING TO THE NEIGHBORS.


This year I am also with the general favorite - "Kavili". It's good that there are only three bushes, otherwise it would be just right to open a cannery. Very productive, trouble-free in agricultural technology, early, beautiful bush. But I have a question for filling: does it seem to me alone that it has a very mediocre taste?


Almost every housewife has her own recipe for preparing zucchini. The Cavili variety is ideal for preparing any of them. Due to its high yield, this variety will feed zucchini to their fill during the season, and will allow you to cook blanks for the whole winter.
