Summer Squash - classic - Sunburst

Type:

Cucurbita

pepo

Bright yellow patty pan squashes

Attractive, whether picked tiny, with the blossom still attached, or teacup-size. Vigorous plants with very good yields of butter-yellow scalloped fruits with bright-green blossom ends. AAS winner. HARVEST BLOSSOMS: Harvest male blossoms (with thin stems) or female blossoms (with thick stems and a bulbous base that becomes the fruit) in mid to late morning when fully open. Clip flowers 1-2" below flower base. If a squash fruit crop is also desired from the same planting, only harvest male flowers, leaving a few to pollinate the female flowers.
