Benning's Green Tint Patty Pan Squash

Certified Organic

Cucurbita pepo

Grown like zucchini, this unique squash has plenty of panache.

Elegantly shaped summer squash that makes a myriad of soft-edged shapes when sliced up. Skin is off-white and flesh is pale green. Will go with almost any Martha Stewart dining room set. Introduced in 1914, U.P. Hedrick wrote about this variety in Cucurbits of New York, in 1937. He calls it Farr's Benning White Bush and goes on to describe it as "one of the most beautiful strains of the whole group of Patty Pans." Grown just like crook neck or zucchini, this compact bush produces well and first fruits are ready in about 50 days. Pick when small before they can be mistaken for flying saucers from Mars.
