I purchased the Fall Seed Collection for some container gardening this autumn and have been very pleased with the results. Germination rate was fantastic and I had to do much more thinning than I usually do from store-bought seeds. The little growing guide helped with varieties I haven't grown before (hello, kohlrabi). All of my plants are hardy and healthy and I'm already enjoying the early harvests. Looking forward to maturity on the longer growers. Will be buying the Granny's kitchen garden pack for spring. Thanks so much!
I planted several varieties over the past couple years. These have been the most reliable producers so far. Averaged 10-15 lbs. one larger one about 20. Nothing remotely close to 40 lbs. that’s ok. Huge ones are a pain to break down.
I planted a whole bunch of this to attract bees and butterflies. It grows like crazy. However I protected the seed with hay because my first round died because of the hot Florida sun and lack of rain lately.
We started these indoors in January. We transplanted them twice and finally out to our raised bed (full coastal sun). The plant is massive and the tomatoes are TASTY! The best little tomatoes we have ever had. We will likely plant them in a separate bed next year since they grow to such a large size and can crowd out other plants.

Organic Scallop Early White Bush Squash
Cucurbita pepo. Organic Scallop Early White Bush (46 days)
The first documentation of this squash that we can find dates back to 1835. Scallop white bush is said to be "in vogue" 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 it is 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 productive and will 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 are handy for the grill, that's for sure!
