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!

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.

What are the pros? Easy to grow, early producer

What are the cons? None

Review:

The seeds germinated quickly, and the young seedlings survived my garden flooding. I don't think their growth was stunted at all. The plants are compact, but are loaded with small fruits. And I mean loaded. So far the plants are handling our Texas humidity & heat. Other plants wilt down during the heat of the day, but not these. The squash themselves are tasty, with a flavor that's a little more complex than "normal" summer squashes. They held up well during cooking and didn't get overly mushy. My only recommendation is to pick them just before the turn tan, the skin was a little tough on the tan ones.

What are the cons? Texture

Review:

I trans planted these in the garden March 30th. These were the first squash to make. I’ve been battling powdery mildew, but this variety doesn’t seem to care much. I think I will always grow these because they make so fast I can beat the vine borers. I’ve lost several yellow squash and zucchini recently (end of May) and these look fine still. The texture isn’t perfect, but hey they seem to be a guaranteed harvest for us.
