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 winner in 1985, Sunburst is the standard scallop-edge dish-shaped squash. The 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. Resistance to powdery mildew.

Sunburst Scallop Summer Squash (F1 Hybrid 50 Days)


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 the 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 the last frost. 

Sowing Outdoors: Sow after the last frost when the 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.

I recommend this product

These were huge, very vigorous plants. They are bush types, but each plant sent 3-4 stems in different directions. Many, many little squashes that were delicious even if picked a little large. We ate them up to 7 inches or so and they were great. Most we picked at 5 inches. The only problem is the plants petered out in mid-August. Plant a second crop in July.

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!

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.
