Very ancient Native American squash! One of the best tasting and highest yielding patty pan varieties around today! Very productive bush type plants produce deeply scalloped, fine textured, pale green, 7" diameter x 3" deep fruits that turn creamy white as they mature. Mild, sweet flavor is perfect for frying or baking. Harvest regularly for continued production. Perfect for containers. Used extensively for home and market.
Pollination occurs by insect, bird, wind, humans, or other natural mechanisms. Because there are no restrictions on the flow of pollen between individuals, open-pollinated plants are more genetically diverse. However, as long as pollen is not shared between different varieties within the same species, then the seed produced will remain true-to-type year after year.
This variety has a history of being passed down within a family or community, similar to the generational sharing of certain items like jewelry or furniture.
