Details

Glowing bright white-green in your garden, these scalloped summer squash look like flying saucers (for tiny little aliens, anyway). Their unique shape results in a myriad of soft-edged forms when sliced up. Grown just like a zucchini, and picked when quite small, these tender-fleshed squash are a joy to grill, steam, or saute--or fry with a ray gun.

Direct sow at 3- or 4-week intervals beginning after last frost (or sow indoors up to 3 weeks earlier--but no sooner). Provide fertile soil for quick and steady growth. Pick when squash are 3-4 inches in diameter. Harvest steadily, and plants will continue to produce for up to a month. Replace with fresh plants at this point, as old summer squash plants quickly lose vigor.
