This summer scallop type is best harvested when the medium dark green fruits are 7.5-10 cm (3-4") in diameter and 5 cm (2") thick. The semi-bush habit makes this a good choice when space is limited. Excellent in stir-fries, soups, stews and casseroles.

How To Grow
10-12 seeds/gram Squash are a hot weather crop. They need full sun and deep, rich, well drained, organic soil with a pH of 5.5 to 6.5. Before planting, work in lots of compost. Directly plant seed outdoors from late May to mid June 2.5 cm (1") deep in hills 2.4 m (8') apart with 4-6 seeds per hill. After germination, thin to 3 plants per hill. Seed can be started indoors 3 weeks before the plant out date. Squash do not transplant well--use paper or fibre pots that can be set directly in the soil. Protect mature squash from frost and cold temperatures.
