Every seed came up, they're about 3' tall with a sturdy stem. Waiting until mid March to put out in the southern (Ga) garden. Will be licking my lips watching them flower and fruit. I like these as an addition to a traditional red tomato salad.
I had 40 mph winds my greenhouse fell over and was so surprised the seeds survived two days in the cold under soil and are still growing. The roots were in tact so i transplanted them, they are doing just fine. 10 stars

Scallop Early White Bush Squash Seed
Cucurbita pepo. Scallop Early White Bush (46 days)
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.
These scallop squashes were VERY productive! I've been picking them for 3 months and still have some growing. Every time I think they're done I find a handful of baby squashes starting again.
I have prepared these roasted on the grill, steamed in the instant pot, and baked in the oven. They have a subtle, creamy flavor of their own and absorb flavor well (they make an excellent pasta sauce!). I have every intention and desire to grow these again!
