Squash Summer, Desi

88% of 100

40 days. 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 fruit 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!
