50 days. Colorful light green scalloped-shaped fruit, tender and good quality; excellent yields, easy to grow. We have grown this variety for many years; an old favorite. Good color for market.

What are the pros? pretty.

What are the cons? not hardy at all. hard to grow

Review:

Chose these based on the earliness, thought it might help with the short New England growing season. Well, I've tried it several years now, in several locations & I am disappointed. Very low germination rate. In addition, seems highly susceptible to every problem in the book from blossom end rot to powdery mildew. To top it all off all plants had a very low yield/flowering rate. i just don't think these are well suited to my area.

Review:

This plant is HUGE! I underestimated just how big it would get. I'm in Tucson, Arizona and it is handling the heat very well. The leaves are almost 12 inches wide and the plant is about 2 feet talk with stalks 1.5 inches thick. It still has a lot of growing to do but even at this "small" size I have about a dozen blossoms between two plants. It is growing faster than any other of my plantings by a long way. Judging from it's progress so far I'm planning on a large harvest that should last all summer long.

a question...
 
Review:

Can anyone comment on the growing habit of this squash? It is described as a bush type, but I've seen mention of it 'vining'. Trying to fit it in a small spot in the PNW! Thank you in advance. All of your comments are super helpful.

Review:

Wonderful in Dallas Texas Area. Great tasting. This heat, drought and insect tolerant will be a staple for years to come. It is a good producer. During the summer of 2011 I only watered 2 times a week. I thought the heat was too great and I was working many long hours. I provided coworkers with plenty as well and once they tried it their thoughts were as mine. Little butter is needed because it already has a buttery flavor. The have small seeds compared to other Squash varieties. This Scallop Squash stayed fresh on my counter for weeks even without an air conditioned home. It is also insect and bug tolerant. Very little trimming is needed and of course, no peeling with this patty pan.

Review:

This is the first time I have grown a garden by myself, and I almost didn't dare hope that I would have any kind of yield of anything I planted. These plants have been producing the most delicious tasting fruit for nearly two months, and they look as though they will be producing for a while yet. They make the most delicious calabacitas, since they hold up better in cooking than do zucchini and yellow squash. I will definitely be planting these next year
