The Desi summer squash was one of the most incredible discoveries of 2015! We grew these out at the Baker Creek Trial Garden and were extremely impressed by how quickly the small bush-type plants started to flower and produce loads of yummy squash. In taste tests in the Baker Creek restaurant, guests overwhelmingly appreciated the nutty rich flavor of this summer squash that is a hit in India. It produces loads of round-baseball-size fruits that are great to use as you would any zucchini! A really amazing vegetable and so easy to grow. One of Joseph Simcox’s favorite summer squash finds in years!

What are the pros? Productive, cute

Review:

This squash is a winner. Here it is mid August in Georgia and the squash vine borers haven't noticed this squash (I know, they will). The zukes and yellow crooknecks succumbed long ago. Desi it has produced a lot of squash for us, and we found out you do need to pick them pretty small while still greenish, because once they are yellow they are too hard to eat. It's not a bush squash, the vines have rambled a bit from home base, perhaps 3-4 feet. I can never tell the taste difference between all the summer squashes, so these taste just great to me. I usually cook them with onions and herbs anyway. My new favorite summer squash!

What are the pros? Easy to grow, prolific, tasty

What are the cons? powdery mildew,don't keep long

Review:

A wonderful little squash that keeps on producing! I have planted just one and have had to give away quite a few because my husband and I could not eat them all. We've had a hot, dry spring and a chilly and often wet summer with a lot of overcast skies. I think that is why my plant got powdery mildew. I gave a plant to two fellow gardeners and they love them. A thing to keep in mind is that they don't keep long. After picking they should be eaten or processed within two maximum 3 days. The taste is great and we like them better than zucchinis.

What are the pros? Germinated well, compact fruit

What are the cons? Bland, short shelf life

Review:

Don't love this squash. It's a bit bland, not very high yields and needs to be consumed as it gets mushy.

What are the pros? Cute little round squash

What are the cons? Few fruits far between

Review:

I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong! I see reviews lauding this squash for its productivity and taste, but my plants have only given me two squash so far and they have been odd in their texture - light, with a hard rind, almost a hollow feel although they are soft and edible inside. It's hot here, although I've kept them well watered through the summer. Possibly San Jose just isn't their climate?

What are the pros? Early and tasty, small plant

What are the cons? n/a

Review:

A lovely little squash that is early and tasty, and hopefully productive! Planted on 1 June, harvested the first three squash after 50 days. Delicious and cute, we can't wait to get more. The plants are, so far, relatively small. Does not seem to be a (squash) bug favorite so we have high hopes for this one in my community garden, which has all the pests and diseases in the book.
