description for "Summer Squash: Cucurbita pepo, 'Partenon'"

Cucurbita pepo 'Partenon' is a parthenocarpic variety (makes fruit without the need for pollinating insects). This feature sets up 'Partenon' as particularly suitable in enclosed settings. And it makes for a much longer harvest period. Fruits mature to a medium-dark green. Days to germination: 3-8 days. 45-55 days to maturity.
