description for "Winter Squash and Pumpkins: Cucurbita moschata 'Summer Scallop Trio'"

'Summer Scallop Trio,' a mixed seed blend from Renee's Garden, offers and 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 saute or slice and grill. Amend soil well before sowing with lots of aged manure or compost. Protect young seedlings from marauding birds by covering with green plastic berry baskets at planting time, removing when plants get crowded. Be sure to thin properly - you will have more productive, disease-free plants if seedlings have enough room to mature. - edited by dtd pbcouchman
