Gelber Englischer Custard Squash

(C. pepo) 60 days. Clear lemon-yellow fruits are a patty-pan type, but with a bizarre twist. Fruits are oddly flattened—impossible to describe. Productive bush plants yield over a long season if kept picked. Recommended for cooler climates like the Pacific Northwest. This unique variety originated in Gatersleben, Germany. Described in Amy Goldman's book "The Compleat Squash."

Review:

I am always looking for new varieties of veggies. Different years I seem to prefer one kind or another-- yellow or green. This year it is yellow and I am liking these because they have produced better than my yellow crooknecks, although I have not given them a great deal of care. They did come on a few days later but that was not a problem. I was not sure exactly when to pick them because the photo in the catalog shows them more orange in color which gave them more of a gourd taste. But once I began to pick them smaller (yellow in color) the quality of flavor was very good. Because they produce heavily and have done much better then my crooknecks, I am finding this particular squash a winner for the year. I will plan to grow these again next year and introduce them at my farmers markets. Thanks again Baker Creek for bringing us something different!!

Review:

I am so glad I tried this summer squash - it has certainly lived up to the glowing reviews. I have three plants growing in large containers, and they are thriving. Each plant currently has 3 or 4 small squash and they are clearly going to produce even more! I find the Gelber Englischer Custard squash flavourful and far less watery than some other summer squashes. I enjoy having it sliced thinly and baked in the oven (with salt, pepper, and olive oil). I will be growing it again next summer!

Review:

This is my favorite squash for flavor, looks and uses. My plants were large, prolific and easy to grow. I don't have a lot of sun in my yard but they did manage to grow well nevertheless. They took a little longer to mature than if they had more sun. I plant in compost only and that seemed to help production a lot.

Review:

I just picked my first squash yesterday, June 25th. It is the best summer squash I have ever eaten. I just cut it up and steamed it. I happen to be out of butter, so I decided to taste a piece with nothing at all on it. I can't stop eating it! This squash is very large...much larger than a patty pan. I picked it a big green because it was getting so large I thought it might be getting woody, but I could have let it go a few days more. Still, it was really tasty. It has cute little curls at the ends of all the points. A lot of summer squash is very bland, but I really love the nutty flavor of this one!

Review:

WE loved this squash. I will not be growing any other summer squash this season. I am wildly addicted to these and have been dreaming of them since last summer. The plants form four foot wide mounding habit vines. I got a ton of squash off of the plants. I was eating these every day in July and August. The flavor is creamy and rich. It has notes of a classic squash flavor but a more subtle buttery tone. It has a deeper more complex flavor than ony other summer squash I have tried. The plants can take a lot. I had them in very heavy clay soil, we had a nasty heat spell of several days in the upper nineties and into the hundreds ( lasted almost two weeks) I also have cucumber beetles and stink bug issues. These plants stood up of that. Eventually in August the bugs got the better of them but they held their own as long as possible. CAN NOT WAIT TO GROW THESE AGAIN!!!
