Sunburst Scallop Summer Squash (F1 Hybrid 50 Days)

Brilliant yellow color, crunchy texture, buttery flavor, and high productivity are all first rate. Designated as an AAS in 1985, Sunburst is the standard scallop-edge dish-shaped squash. Plant has a compact, open habit bush. For optimum tenderness and flavor, we recommend picking the squash young, when it is 2-3” in diameter. 

20 seeds

PLANTING

Cucurbita pepo

Germination: 4-10 days

Germination Temperature: Optimum soil temperatures 70-85ºF

Seed Sowing Depth: 1/2-1" deep

Sowing Indoors: 3-4 weeks before last frost. Provide 70-85ºF soil temperature. Sow 2-3 seeds per cell/pot. Sowing into individual biodegradable peat/cow pots reduces root damage when transplanting. Transplant 36-48" apart after last frost. 

Sowing Outdoors: Sow after last frost when soil temperature is over 70ºF. Sow a few seeds every 36-48". 

Harvest: Check and harvest a few times a week. Cut or kindly twist off fruit, starting at a 3-4”.

Tips: Plant in fertile soil, amended with compost or well rotted manure and keep well watered. They benefit from growing on black plastic and by using row covers for weed, insect control, and more rapid growth.

Prolific plants

I sowed the seeds directly in my garden early spring and am harvesting daily now. These plants seem heartier than any other summer squash that I've tried. The stalk is nice and thick with prolific flowers and squash. The vine borers aren't interested in them like they are my yellow crookneck squash which was demolished. The fruit is beautiful and delicious. I've gotten a lot of complements on them. Thank you!

Summer Squash Heaven

This is one of my favorites. The taste is buttery - try it steamed with a bit of dill. The yield is always prolific and dependable. You just can't miss.

Delightful!

We planted these 4 years ago and loved them. Will get more this year. Our favorite recipe was boil, cool, scoop out interior, add herbs and cheese and brad crumbs, reshuffle and bake till hot. Made a lot and froze. So good!
