Benning's Green Tint Pattypan Squash - Seeds


Latin name: Cucurbita pepo

Benning's Green Tint is a cultivar of pattypan (or scallopini) squash, with a unique flying saucer shape. A non-runner squash, it produces numerous fruits from 1 to 4.5 lbs in size, pale green in colour on the vine and creamy white when ripe. The flesh is white, thick, firm and very similar to zucchini. Picked young (10-15 cm in diameter), they are prized by chefs for their quality and often used as mini vegetables. Cooked, they are aromatic with a hint of artichoke and a slightly musky scent. Easy to grow and naturally very disease resistant. Picked at full maturity when the skin has thickened, they can be kept for several months and remain excellent.

Plant fragile au transplant

Fragile au transplant peut-être plus facile en terre. Je vais essayer l'an prochain mais belle production et mon plant est devenue géant donc super !

Bonne germination...

... mais récolte qui tarde. Une belle courge à maturité (11 cm) pour le moment sur 4 plants.
