Summer Squash Mix

6 reviews

All sorts of maturities, colors, flavors, shapes, etc. They will cross with one another so if you save some seeds you could get some very interesting surprises next year. 

100 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.

Summer squash mix

Love this mix, I have a variety of squash in the garden so we don't get tired of just one kind. They germinate quickly about 90% and my ones under cloche are already full of flowers a month before normal. As always a great product.

Looking forward to growing and harvesting the summer squash mix. So far the plants themselves are doing fine no problem terminating!

Have always had great success with Pine Tree seeds. Orders are always correct and arrive in a timely manner. Seed have always produced Maine hardy plants that yield well. I intend on shopping here every year

Buttery Deliciousness!

Easy to grow, prolific, and the patty pan (scallop) squash are mild and buttery! I slice them and cook them in butter every morning for breakfast. I am making these a permanent fixture in my garden!

Patty Pan = Amazing

My wife and I co-manage our 3.000 sq ft garden with 4 other families/neighbors and we All felt compelled to write this first and probably only review of any seed because the Patty Pan squash plant that came out of this summer mix packet was the Gold winner of the summer above all else. Collectively, we harvested probably 25 squash of all sizes from this beast. The plant crawled along the ground, and then crawled some more. It spanned 15 feet, base -root to end at its peak and may have gone longer had it not been for the unforeseen limits on space and borers as all our squash succumb to here in Georgia 8A. We painted around 10 of the seeds from the mix pack and got really good green zucchini results too. But the surprise patty pan plant from the pack was the winner of smiles this summer—okra, peppers, beans, tomatoes, melons—the Patty took them all down. If we knew what variety of Patty it was we would have written this review under it specifically and I hope someone for PT reads this and replies with what variety it may have been. —PR. Bogart, GA.
