Gelber Englischer Custard Squash
60 days. Incredible flavor! A favorite in the kitchen! 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.
