SQUASH – YELLOW SCALLOP

Cucurbita pepo

Also known as Pattypan, this tasty squash has pale yellow flesh that is quite flavourful and is deliciously fresh, steamed or baked. Very productive cheery yellow squash that is best picked when small enough to fit in your hand – 5-7cm. Less attractive to squash bugs than other squash.

Sow seed directly into the garden or pots. Plant seeds 15mm deep covering with fine soil. Plant in the sunny location in rich, well-drained soil. Keep fairly well watered and fertilize monthly, but avoid constant over watering and continual use of high-nitrogen fertilizers. An outstanding easy-to-grow squash   For continued harvest, pick fruit regularly when young.
