First documentation we can find is a reference 1835 in New York where scallop white bush is said to be envogue at the time and popular in the New York Markets.  Later it is mentioned by B.K. Bliss and son of New York in 1870.

Sometimes called "Patty Pan". 

Flying saucer shaped fruits look like they will soon spin right out of your garden. Kids love the look of these great little squashes and makes it easier to get them to eat them.  Scallop early white bush is born on productive bushes that bear all summer long if picked.  Easy to grow and unbothered by most insects.  Creamy, tasty texture makes these little squashes great for many dishes. 

Patio or small urban growers might give this perfect little bushy squash a try.  Try a couple in a wine barrel on your deck. They would be handy for the grill that is for sure.

Planting Tips For Heirloom Summer Squash Seeds:

Heirloom summer squash are warm weather crops, as the name implies and the germination temperature verifies.  Only plant once the soil temperature warms to at least 70 degrees.  Mounding up small hills will create the right soil consistancy and allow the soil to warm quicker.  Mix in a shovelful of compost with handfulls of bone meal and wood ash to create the perfect soil environment for these heirloom seeds.

Plant 3-6 heirloom squash seeds per hill.  Once they have shown true leaves and grown in size, you should thin out to the 3 strongest plants.  Remember, harvest these summer squash continually in order to keep the plant producing.

Seed Care tips for Heirloom Summer Squash:

Heirloom seeds are hardy, but always take care with your garden seeds to give them the appropriate amount of moisture - don't let the vegetable seeds dry out prematurely, and don't overwater and possibly have them rot.
