An ancient native American heirloom squash, grown by the Northern Indians for hundreds of years. Great fried and baked, this summer squash is one of the best tasting and yielding varieties around today. Flat fruit with scalloped edges, beautiful! (50 days)
Summer Squash is grown for immature fruits which can be harvested all summer long. Heavy feeders, they prefer soil amended with manure or compost.
Sow in place in full sun after last frost; or start a couple weeks earlier indoors — never let transplants become root bound and do not disturb the roots when transplanting. Seeds are sown up to 1 inch deep. Space plants 3 feet apart.
