C. pepo. Bennings Green Tint scallopini seeds are CERTIFIED ORGANIC! Benning’s Green Tint pattypan squash (or scallopini squash) is a pretty little pale-green, almost white, elegant scallopini that grows on a tidy, productive bush. We recommend harvesting these squash a day or two after pollination, when the fruits are tiny and tender, with very appealing flavour raw or cooked. If left to mature, Benning’s develops a “belly” that can be carved into a unique serving dish for summer soups and salads. This is an old heirloom variety that was first introduced around 1914. The plants do not sprawl, but they can be tall, so keep a close eye for fruits forming beneath the foliage.
Matures in 55 days. (Open-pollinated seeds)
