White bush type summer squash. The prolific plants produce 5-10 white skinned, scallop edged fruits. Excellent for baby fruit and standard size production. The patty pan type fruits give an added interest to any garden.
Summer squashes are just as easy to grow as any courgette, marrow.
Sow these squash seeds late March through April under glass for growing in the greenhouse, or late April through May to transplant outdoors. Seeds can also be sown direct outdoors, in a finely prepared bed, from late May. So in every two weeks to extend production. Mid-summer sowings can be successful if the plants kept in a greenhouse for the autumn.
Sow the seeds 2 cm deep in 7.5 cm pots of good compost or in seed cells, 1-2 seeds per pot/cell, so you can save the stronger seedling. Transplant the seedlings into bigger pots when large enough to handle
Place in a propagator before transplanting outside to acclimatize the seedlings to the cooler conditions, leave 60 cm between plants
Pick fruit regularly to encourage further production. 50 days from germination you can enjoy the first fruit.
