40 days. Our Earliest 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 is great to use as you would any zucchini! A really amazing vegetable and so easy to grow. One of Joseph Simcox’s favorite finds in summer squash in years!

What are the pros? Different

What are the cons? Small, tough peel, mold,

Review:

I usually grow Costata Romanesco, and was interested in another variety.. It’s ok. Was more prone to actual mold on the vine, harder to prune for improving airflow, and the squash got a tough skin rather quickly, before even getting large. I won’t buy again.

What are the pros? Taste, lots of fruits, easy

What are the cons? Oidium

Review:

Delicious, gives a lot of fruits and is easy to grow. Also, the fruits ripen quite fast. I've read in the comments that you should not let them become yellow or they would become hard but letting them turn yellow was really okay for me. It didn't make the skin hard. They are in full sun, maybe that helps. Oidium appeared on the plants about a month ago but the biggest one is still producing, growing a lot of new leaves away from the badly affected ones.

What are the pros? Durable

What are the cons? None

Review:

The desi squash performed superbly in my garden. They fruit abundantly, and were the most resistant to pests and leaf molds of any squash I've grown so far. I feel like the only down side was that there are not many traditional recipes to be found for these. You can use them in anything you would use zucchini for, of course - they're a little drier, which tends to be even easier to work with.

What are the pros? Very prolific

What are the cons? Tough skin not very ediable

Review:

It did amazing here in hot humid Waco I never had a single problem, no squash bugs, no disease, nothing. I love that they came so early and that they produced so much I think the only downside is the tough skin But, I just cut it off before cooking it. Other than that I recommend if your new to squash and maybe are a little timid after hereing about squash bugs this might be well worth your first try.

What are the pros? A small space must!!!

What are the cons? So far, none

Review:

N E TX here, and this is a must for those who like summer squash. This squash fits wonderfully into small space gardens, takes off quickly, puts on so much fruit, and handles our pests with minimal input. This is definitely in my gardens plans going forward.
