Summer Scallop/Patty Pan Squash
Heirloom

If you love summer squash, you won’t be able to get enough of this colorful blend of scallop types. Pretty enough to display in a bowl on your kitchen counter. Early White Bush and Golden Scallop are native American heirlooms, dating back hundreds of years. Bennings Green Tint was introduced in the early 1900s. Begin to harvest when squash are 2" in diameter and at their most tender, luscious peak. Old-fashioned recipe inside packet.

When to sow outside: RECOMMENDED. 2 to 4 weeks after average last frost and when soil temperatures have risen above 60° F.

When to start inside: Not recommended except in very short season climates, 2 to 4 weeks before average last frost. Sow in individual pulp pots that can be planted directly in the ground.

Harvesting: Harvest when squash is 2" - 3" in diameter. When left to grow larger, the seeds get hard and tough and the squash gets pithy.
