Amazing Varieties Of Summer Squash
But why grow plain old zucchini when you could have Emperors Jade or Green Zebra squash that’s ideal for grilling? Get colorful and change up the shape with yellow 49er summer squash or Moonbeam pie-shaped squash.
We found a huge variety of summer and winter squash at Seeds By Design, a California wholesale distributor. While many are green and cylindrical, there are plenty of variations.
Greyzinni, for example, is a dappled, light-colored grey and green squash that matures early at 43 days and targets the international and ethnic markets. The striped, yellow/green Giallo De Italia and light green Genovese and Romanesco target Italian markets.
With so many choices, it’s important to read the descriptions that provide maturity dates, color and texture of the squash. Also, some, like the Partial Eclipse scalloped squash, can be eaten as a summer squash or allowed to fully develop and use as a winter squash.
Since Seeds by Design sells to wholesalers and dealers and not retail, watch for some of their varieties in your favorite garden catalog or business.
