Patisson Golden Marbre Scallop (Organic)

Cucurbita pepo. Golden-Yellow. 60 days.

Bright golden-yellow patty pan squash with a delightful nutty flavor. Young fruit are nice and tender, larger fruit are firm and crunchy. Large bushy plants are quite productive. Unlike hybrid summer squash, the fruit still tastes great when picked over- mature. Perhaps the most amazing thing about this summer squash is its ability to store off the plant. We had a few fruit on our counter for over a month and they still cooked up perfectly delicious (we did have to scoop out a few seeds, though). Could this be a storage type summer squash? Or is it a dual purpose summer and winter squash? Would be good to sow in spring with the winter squash and again mid-summer for a fall crop. A rare heritage French variety that makes us want to trial many more French varieties.

Sow indoors in 2” pots with good potting soil May to mid-June. Transplant into the garden 1-2 weeks after sprouting to 2-3’ centers and 3’ wide rows. May also be direct sown when soil is warm. Squash plants are frost-sensitive and benefit from row cover to protect them from frost and insects while plants are young.

Seed Saving

To save seed, let fruit mature on plant until they’re giant in autumn. Harvest fruit and scoop out seeds. Rinse off and dry. Isolate from other squash of the same species by at least ½ mile.

    Where did you grow this variety? Oregon

    We are growing these babes for market this year. The color is slightly variegated which is a beautiful contrast to our other pattys and the flavor is great too.
