One of the oldest varieties of squash, introduced to colonial gardeners in the early 1700’s by the native Lenape people of the Delaware Valley.


Bush type plant considered the best summer squash by many gardeners. Pale yellow fruits known for their sweet buttery taste and firm texture. Harvest when young (6-8”) for best flavor. Fruits develop ‘warts’ as they mature.


Plant seed outdoors after the danger of frost is past or start indoors 4 - 6 weeks earlier. Traditionally planted in “hills” (a small circular group of 3 - 5 seeds) seeds can also be planted in rows or large pots. Cover seed with ½” of fine soil. Germinates in 7 - 14 days depending on weather. Thin to allow each plant 2 square feet. Keep fruits picked for continuous harvest. Matures in 45 days.
