'Jaunte et Verte' squash tastes like it's covered in butter! This beautiful French heirloom patty pan is tender when picked young, with thin, delicate skin. Rind varies from light green (verte), to yellow (jaune), to radial green stripes on ivory squash (small fruit may not show streaking). Delicious used fresh all summer, but can be matured to the hard shell stage and used as an ornamental, or cooked like a winter squash. Long harvest period, prolific.

When to Start Inside: Not recommended except in very short growing seasons, 2 to 4 weeks before transplanting. Roots are sensitive to disturbance; sow in biodegradable pots that can be planted directly into the ground. Transplant when soil temperature is at least 60°F.

Harvesting: Harvest frequently to increase yield; squash seem to get monstrous overnight. While edible at almost any size, seeds are less developed in young fruit, therefore more tender. Using a knife or clippers, cut squash off including some of the stem. By including stem, the fruit is sealed and less likely to mold or dry out. Harvesting Blossoms: Look for male, non-fruit producing flowers that have long stems and harvest just before use (female flowers have a swollen mini-squash at the base of the flower and shorter stems).

These pattypan could actually be described as creamy. Not as prolific as others I have grown, but well worth it as far as flavor goes. My family's (as well as most of the friends I have gifted one or two of the precious creatures to) new favorite summer squash. I'll be planting more than two plants next year.
