C. pepo. The same shape, colour, and sweet taste as the well-loved regular Delicata (SQ737), but on much tidier plants. This variety bears up to eight fruits on each plant!

As on any squash, poor pollination sometimes causes plants to abort their fruits. This is when the fruits turn black from the blossom end. To prevent this, be sure to plant pollinator attracting flowers around your squash beds. For this compact bush type, a border of Alyssum will draw in pollinators of all kinds and ensure good fruit set all season long.
