Very tasty and bug resistant summer squash the size and color of a lemon…
C. pepo. Open pollinated. A very tasty and attractive heirloom summer squash that can be quite productive. Bug resistant, it keeps producing long after other squashes have succumbed. The fruits are abundant and the size and shape and color of lemons. The flavor and texture are very good, meaty and firm. These little beauties hold up well for grilling. Or grow to larger size and make very cute stuffed squash. This is a partially vining squash that starts out in a bush form but eventually runs a little. Produces over a long season even in areas where growing summer squash organically is a challenge. Highly recommended.
