Pattypan or Scallop-Type Summer Squash

A reliable warm weather producer, Pattypan should be sown as transplants 3 to 4 weeks before the last frost date. It can be direct-sown when the soil is above 50°F. Thin skinned, they store poorly, so harvest right before use. Keep picking to ensure continued production. Enjoy them small and sweet in ratatouille, stuffed and baked, grilled or sautéed with pasta. Bee friendly. Deer resistant.

Average seed life: 2 years.

Bennings Green-Tint Pattypan Squash

50-55 days. Cucurbita pepo. A lovely, little American heirloom from the early 1900s, Bennings Green-Tint is a Pattypan-type also known as Scallop Squash due to its round, flattened and scallop-edged shape. The Bennings Green-Tint bush grows 3' to 4' tall with a high yield of glistening, pale green-skinned Pattypan. Its pale green flesh matures to creamy white with an excellent flavor, a hint of sweetness and a tender, yet meaty, texture when picked at 2" to 3" in diameter. You will be able to harvest these productive plants until frost as long as you harvest it regularly and fully all season. They are prized for quick sautéing, steaming or serving fresh with summer dips. (OP.)
