A summer scallop squash also known as ‘Patty Pan’. Unique bright yellow colour with a dark green sunburst pattern on both blossom and stem ends. The space-saving bush-type plants are loaded with vividly coloured fruit. Extremely tasty when harvested young 2 to 6 cm (1-3 in). Interior flesh is creamy white and tender with a mild, buttery flavour. An attractive ornamental as well.
Squash plants are frost tender and must be planted when danger of frost is past. For earlier fruit, plant in 8 cm (3 in) jiffy pots or strips 3 to 4 weeks prior to intended date of transplanting to the garden. Plant the seed 4 cm (1 1/2 in) deep and keep the soil warm, 22 C (72 F). Space plants in the garden 1 m (3 ft) apart. Fertilize with 10-52-17 and liquid seaweed for strong healthy plants.
