Summer Squash, Yellow Pattypan mix

Summer Squash, Yellow Pattypan mix

A recent blend of mine, I focus mainly on selecting the short branching bush habit yielding good amounts of small yellow pattypans. The latest and least prolific plants are dropped. A few may still produce light green fruit in early stages then all turning to yellow ripe. To build this population, I combined two yellow OP pattypan-type squash varieties, one from Ukraine and one from the UK. Both showed variability in their growth habits and fruit shape; the selection comprises our earliest and most productive yellow fruits with the characteristic wavy disc shape, some more or less flattened, some more tulip-shaped. Variable sensitivity to powdery mildew too. One of our latest pepo squash to mature seed. Ripens pumpkin-orange; fun for mini carvings too!

    Our seeds are packaged by weight. The actual number of seeds indicated per packet may differ, but we do our best to include at least (generally more) the quantity mentioned. The quantity depends on the seed germination scores so as to include the right number of viable seeds.

  • Seed Starting

    Somewhat late, we prefer to sow indoors in May and transplant them when a first true leaf has formed. Plant in June after the last frost, once soil has warmed.
