Let's face it, whether you plant one zucchini seed or many, you're going to end up with a shitload of zucchini. Except for maybe one year when we got hit pretty bad by some squash vine borers, we have always had more zucchini than what can be eaten from typical everyday consumption (our excess is usually turned into soup and frozen for the winter).
The zucchini variety we've been using for a number of years has been the Striata D'Italia. There really wasn't any science behind our decision; we picked the Striata because it looked cool. Now that we're up to our eyeballs in these things, I am grateful that they're at least pleasing to look at.
