The Cavili f1 squash was bred by Dutch breeders. It is considered one of the best hybrids on the market today. Its advantage, unlike many varieties, is early maturity, self-pollination and yield - because of these qualities, this bush zucchini is in great demand.

Description of the variety

Zucchini Cavili is a plant with dark green leaf blades with white spots. This vegetable has a very compact size, with small internodes - it grows in the form of a bush. Unlike other varieties, it does not "creep" on the sides.

This hybrid feels good both outdoors and under film cover. Produces flowers predominantly female. Since it is self-pollinated, the absence of bees will not interfere with the growth of a large number of vegetables on it.

The culture begins to bear fruit early - already 40 days after the appearance of young plants. Its fruits are light green in color, even, cylinder-shaped. The skin on young zucchini is thin, and the flesh is very juicy and tender.

Fruits grow together and for a long time - more than 60 days from the beginning of fruiting. Plant yield from 1 m2 reaches up to 9 kg. Each individual vegetable grows up to 22 cm, and they weigh an average of 300 g each. This hybrid has an increased resistance to overripening. Even vegetables that have not been plucked for several days will taste just as great as those that have only reached medium size.


The Kavili zucchini hybrid is distinguished by its unpretentiousness and ease of care.

This vegetable crop is sown in light, nutritious soil with neutral acidity. It is desirable that the predecessors of this representative of the pumpkin were:

  • potatoes;
  • bow;
  • peas, beans, or beans;
  • cabbage.

Before sowing a crop, you need to enrich the soil with compost or humus. Siderates, a mixture of ash and superphosphate fertilizer, also give good results.

Zucchini plants are grown in two ways. One of them with the help of seedlings, and the second - by direct sowing into the ground.

In the first case, seedlings are sown in mid-spring. To do this, put one seed in the hole of each pot, and preferably 2-3. After the appearance of young plants, weak specimens are pulled out, and full-fledged ones are left. After 30 days, the seedlings are transferred into the holes to a permanent place of development.

Each of the options implies that a group of plants in the garden will be located at a distance of 70x140 cm. Such a distance between the zucchini will make it possible to have full development.

You need to know that purchased seeds are treated with tyramine (a nutrient), so such seed should not be soaked.

Young plants require a lot of light, heat and moisture. Failure to comply with these conditions sharply reduces the yield of Kavili zucchini, and also the taste is lost in those fruits that have grown. The temperature for the active development of the culture should be from 20 ° C and above. If the amount of heat is insufficient, then a growth arrest is possible.

The volume of water should be up to 10 liters for each m32... Also, in order for the plant to develop safely and receive enough light, it is necessary to perform periodic weeding, loosening the topsoil, and, if necessary, make additional fertilizing.

Care features

Zucchini Kavili f1 likes to grow in light soils, but if you plant the plant in heavy, clayey soil, then it will develop, only its yield will decrease. Therefore, to improve the parameters of water and air permeability of the earth, it is necessary to add river sand and peat.

Acidity for the plant also plays an important role. Ideally, it is neutral. In order to reduce the acidity of the soil, dolomite flour or lime is added to it.

Experts recommend that if the culture is planted in a shaded area, then it is necessary to thin out the plants during the flowering period and the formation of ovaries.

Removing a couple of leaves will allow you to get more light.

You should also try to harvest in a timely manner. Although the high quality of the fruits is preserved when their collection is delayed, the formation of new zucchini slows down. This negatively affects the yield.

Advantages and disadvantages

In zucchini of this variety, gardeners appreciate the following qualities:

  • early appearance of fruits;
  • excellent productivity;
  • self-pollination of the hybrid;
  • long fruiting period;
  • good resistance to disease;
  • fruits of high quality.

If the care for them is insufficient, and, in particular, there is not enough moisture in the area where they grow, then the yield will be low. Plants also suffer from frost in both spring and autumn.

Pests and diseases

In general, Cavili is resistant to disease, but preventive measures only increase the gardener's chances of enjoying its wonderful fruits:

  1. With an aphid invasion, the culture is sprayed with one of the following drugs: Confidor, Iskra or Phosbecid.
  2. Spider mites are fought against with onion infusion. It is made from husks, laundry soap and red pepper powder. Take a bucket of water and insist in it the top shell of the onion. At the end they give grated soap and a hot spice.
  3. Powdery mildew is helped by the processing of zucchini with ground sulfur.
  4. With anthracnose, a Bordeaux mixture will be effective.

Alternating crops in the garden will only increase the chance of having healthy plants.

Harvesting and storage

The ripening period of the beginning of the harvest is 45 days after the appearance of young plants. The expectation of the first fruits is July-early August. It depends on the climatic zone. The culture bears fruit for a long time, until the very frost.

You need to remove the fruits on time, because they stop the bushes from growing and developing. If their long-term storage is planned, then it is necessary to cut the zucchini together with the "tail", and in the case of quick use of the fruit - without it.

Milk vegetables are stored for a maximum of two weeks at 2 ° C. At the end of this time, they acquire roughness, wrinkles and begin to deteriorate. In order for the zucchini to be stored longer, ripe fruits should be cut off, in which the skin will be thicker.

The fruits are placed in boxes for safekeeping, covered with straw on the bottom. The zucchini should not touch each other. The place needs to be dry and dark. For long-term storage, you can freeze the zucchini. To do this, they are washed, cut, packaged and placed in a chamber.

The characteristics of these fruits are that they are ideal for preservation. They are pickled, after which, when used, they acquire an appetizing crunch and do not lose their taste. Zucchini is also fried, stewed, caviar is prepared.

Our gardeners are so fond of Cavili hybrid zucchini that they no longer imagine their absence. After all, this vegetable is notable for its early ripeness, is easy to care for, and gives a lot of delicate light green fruits, which are very popular with all family members.
