These are 1:12 scale miniature yellow zucchini. These miniature courgettes are sculpted from premium polymer clay and modeled after Golden zucchini that were grown here on the farm.
Golden is a newer variety, as far as heirlooms go, that was introduced in 1973 by W. Atlas Burpee. It inherited its lovely golden yellow color from crossing Bicolored gourd with one of Burpee’s older classic zucchini, Fordhook. The fruit are a rich yellow, often with some yellow blending up into the stems, which is replicated on these miniature versions.
As they are handmade, and each is meant to be unique, there is some variation in size, color, and shape from piece to piece, but these Golden zucchini are about 5/8″ to 6/8″ (1-1/2 to 2 cm) long.
These are art miniatures and are not intended as a toy.
Zucchinis are sold individually or as a set of three.
