Y-Star Pattypan Squash

45-55 days. Cucurbita pepo. Y-Star is a classic yellow Pattypan Squash with a twist! The open, low-spine plants yield early and continuous harvests of nutty, sweet and tender, golden yellow fruits with scalloped edges and a lime-green circle on the blossom end. So pretty! Harvest at 2” to 4” wide for the best flavor, or allow them to mature and harden for fall displays. (F1.)

 

One packet of about 10 seeds

  • Information
  • 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.
