Teot Bat Put Summer Squash (F1 Hybrid 65 Days)

This Korean summer squash variety, also known as avocado squash, has deep glossy green skin and light yellow, delicate sweet flesh. With long trailing vines, it is an ideal summer squash to grow vertically on a trellis. Harvest fruits at 3-4” in diameter, and if you forget to pick a few, the fruits mature into edible winter squash.
