This squash is awesome.


It's a variety of summer squash called "Lemon Squash" because, as you can see, the fruit looks like lemons. We got the seeds from Baker Creek, where they were advertised as tasty, prolific, and bug-resistant. So far they haven't disappointed.

There are four up on the scale, so they average about a half a pound each—the perfect single-serving size to eat for lunch or to throw in with dinner.

Cool squash! Baker Creek is a great source for seeds, and the owners seem really fun.

If you want to try an additional variety of squash next year, I recommend Ronde de Nice zucchini. I picked my first one the other day: round and about a pound. And delicious!

How do you cook them? I think serving single squash for lunch would be groovy but I don't have a recipe ... we only have monster pumpkins and marrows on our allotment this year, but next year I want to get to patty pan and some other squash varieties which seem to be much more common in the US than here in the UK

Yes, these are great! I got them (and 'Ronde de Nice') from Baker Creek as well!
