Desi Summer Squash

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!

Will always grow Desi
Easy to Grow 5.0
EarlyMaturity 3.5
 

What are the pros? Very fruitful!

What are the cons? Cats like to eat the sprout

Review:

I planted 4 bushes and have had 2 desi off each bush every other day (or 24 a week!) all summer. I have steamed, boiled, roasted and pickled them; always very rich and nutty. The best thing I found to do with these is to make Chow-chow relish. I did not know a squash could make such a crunchy relish! Always pick small as the center gets mealy when bigger than a baseball.

BEST SQUASH

EarlyMaturity 5.0
 

What are the pros? Early, tender, delicious!

What are the cons? None

Review:

Matures much quicker than zuchinni. Pick at baseball size (not softball!) for tender skin and delicious flavor! Better than zuchinni, more prolific, earlier. A real winner!

Inconsistent and tough skin
Easy to Grow 4.5
EarlyMaturity 4.0
 

What are the pros? Easy to Grow

What are the cons? Inconsistent:tough skin &color

Review:

I have around 8 plants. I'm getting fruits of different coloring and toughness of skin even at a young stage. I doubted my market customer, but sure enough they were right. I dislike having to warn customers about the potential unedible skin that I will not regrow these. They guys aren't super attractive and at the market they seem to sell poorly. Buy the LEMON squash instead!

Winner
Easy to Grow 5.0

What are the pros? Flavor, texture, shape, early

What are the cons? none

Review:

This is my first try with this variety, and it's a winner in my view. I planted zucchini the same day and harvested the first Desi before the first zucchini had set. The flavor and texture remind me of coosa: firm and a bit nutty. Production is heavy, and the shape and size lend themselves to individual serving stuffed squash recipes. I included both summer squashes in a lasagna, and the Desi held a firmer texture in the finished product than the zucchini.

I planted all again earlier this month(second batch), Desi was first in all again. I really like this squash for taste and production! So are the people at church when I bring bags of garden goodies! Very pleased.
