Gelber Englischer Custard Squash

         
 
17 Reviews | Write a Review
 
 

Clear lemon-yellow fruit is a patty-pan type, but with a bizarre twist. Fruit is 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. Matures Orange in color

Just won first place at the 2019 Kentucky State Fair with this squash. We have grown it for 3 years with no complaints. Never thought about competitive gardening until the Comments I got from people. Will continue to grow.

Review:

I didn’t see anyone else mention this so I just wanted to add that when I harvested this delicious squash at just 3-4” (young) they taste like artichoke hearts. These are scrumptious and so easy to grow!

Review:

I ordered these seeds primarily because I thought they would be a bit of a conversation piece in our community garden - and they were! I planted yellow crookneck, cocozella, and black zucchini and the custard squash were the only plants that didn't succumb to a garden-wide, late-season squash bug infestation. For steaming, suggest picking when the fruit is pale-to-lemon yellow as it toughens up as it matures. However, we really enjoyed the older (orange) squash in soups, as the flavor is richer. the June-planted crop kept producing through to late August here in the Midwest, long after the zucchini had petered out.
