Our mixed seed packet offers an easy way to grow a delicious trio of different colored pattypan squashes. Buttercup-yellow fluted "Sunburst" is tender and nutty tasting simply steamed or poached in broth. Dark green, glossy little "Starship" has zucchini color and flavor in a unique flying saucer shape. Pretty apple-green "Peter Pan" scallops are creamy and sweet fleshed - a treat to sauté or slice and grill.

Planting & Care
Soil & Water:Amend soil well before sowing with lots of aged manure or compost.
Planting & Growing:Plant only when spring weather is warm and night temperatures stay above 50 degrees. Plant in slightly mounded hills, 2 feet in diameter and 2 feet apart. Plant 5-6 seeds 1" deep and 4" apart. Thin hill seedlings to 2 strongest plants.
For row planting, sow in groups of 2-3 seeds, 1" deep and 18" apart in rows 2 feet apart. Thin to strongest plant per group. Protect seedlings from birds.
Harvesting & Storage: Harvest when no more than 2-3" across for best flavor and tenderness. Frequent harvesting keeps plants producing.
