  • Acorn, Table Ace: (70 days) Semi-bush plants yield 4”-5” black-green fruit with excellent flavor.
  • Patty Pan, Early White: (50 days) Heirloom.  Grown by Native Americans.  Flat, white, prolific!  Good fried or baked.  Also known as a white scallop squash.
  • Spaghetti: (100 days) Oblong, 8” yellow squash. Harvested in late summer/early Fall. Stores for several months in a cool, dry location.
