Plant Information
Named for its lovely color, growing style, and unique shape, Yellow Bush Scallop summer squash is an easy-to-grow, patty pan variety that's pretty in the garden and fun in the kitchen. The bush-style plants produce generous yields of petite, scallop-shaped squash that's vibrant yellow in color and punctuated by a bright green stem. The flesh inside is creamy and white and mildly nutty in flavor, making it a favorite for fresh eating as well as getting creative in the kitchen. Bake them, stuff them, roast them, grill them, or use them in casseroles, soups, and pasta dishes. The possibilities are endless, as is the growing season seemingly. You'll enjoy quite a prosperous crop when you plant Yellow Bush Scallop summer squash early in the spring, harvesting regularly to promote continued growth. Each squash can grow as large as 7 inches across, but can be rather tough and bitter at that size. That's why it's best to pick them about halfway to maturity (2-4 inches in diameter) to ensure you enjoy their optimal texture and flavor.
