Type: Patty Pan, Bush

Attributes: Good for Containers

When to Sow Outside: RECOMMENDED. 1 to 2 weeks after your average last frost date, and when soil temperature is 70°–85°F.

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.

Days to Emerge: 5–10 days

Seed Depth: ½"–1"

Seed Spacing: 2–3 seeds per mound

Row Spacing: 3'–4'

Thinning: When 3 leaves , thin to 1 – 2 plants per mound

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).

Scallop Blend Summer (Patty Pan) Squash Seeds Reviews

not very rugged but yummy when you get any fruit!

3 out of 5 stars Jun 12, 2020
These squash are delicious. The germination rate is not as good as some of the other squashes I bought from BI, the plants grow a bit slower, and they are not as productive (squash per plant per day) as other varieties. But if you do not mind a bit of fussiness, these are wonderful.

Pretty packaging but no oomph!

Implanted these seeds on three separate occasions during the early spring (Feb-Apr) this year and to my disappointment, nothing grew. I even tried germinating them indoors in a ziplock bag with a napkin and some water (remember elementary science?) and still nothing. I think I got some bad seeds. I am so very sad. I hoping these would provide a bumper crop for our family.

While we enjoyed the novelty of this fun-shaped squash, it wasn't as prolific as we had hoped. Then again, neither was the zucchini this year. I still have seeds left. Maybe next year will be a better summer squash year.

Scallop Patty Pan

This was my first year trying this variety and they were excellent. I decided to try these because I hadn't had much success with other brands, and I'm glad I switched! They produced all summer long, more than I've ever had. No disease or pest problems! The taste was amazing. Simple to grow and an abundant harvest!

Scallop blend summer squash

I was very dissapointed with this variety. Out of 5 plants, I only harvested one patty pan. I was so looking forward to them.
Rebecca from MD
Owner Response: Hi Rebecca, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience, we are sorry it wasn't a good experience however, we have some tips to help ensure you are successful with squash in the future. Squash flowers require bee pollination to produce fruit and with the population of pollinators suffering many gardeners are finding they need to hand-pollinate their flowers to get fruit to grow. You can find an article link about hand pollination under the "Learn More" tab on this product page. Just to clarify, this is not an issue that arises from the seed. Once a seed germinates its success is dependant upon environmental factors. As always, we are happy to help troubleshoot growing issues like this. After all, our goal is for you to have a successful, fun experience gardening. Happy gardening!

Scallop Blend Summer (Patty Pan) Squash Seeds

I've been growing this variety for a few years now, at 6500' altitude out in the Great Plains of southern Colorado, and I find them to be a reliable germinator, with vigorous growth (without getting the plants getting too large as some squashes will do), and a good producer of fun-shaped fruits in a variety of colors. Pick them small for more tender fruits, or let them get large (some will grow as large in diameter as your face!) for freezing/preserving or putting on the grill, etc. I definitely recommend this mix.

Loved these

5 out of 5 stars Aug 27, 2021
This was my first time growing squash and I found these so easy and fun. I have a small yard, so the more compact bush-style plant made it easier for me. The patty pans are so cute! To be honest, I'm growing them for fall decor rather than for eating and they're going to be perfect. I crammed these into a pretty small raised bed and kind of neglected them and they seem to be doing fine. I would agree they're probably not as prolific as some other squash, from my understanding, but I don't mind because the results are so perfect and adorable. I seem to have mostly white and would have liked a few more yellow, but that's ok. This is a great seed for those of us with limited space. Am definitely getting more next year.

Poor Producer

1 out of 5 stars Nov 30, 2021
These seeds germinated without issue but produced very few fruits which is unusual for squash.
Teresa from MA
Owner Response: Hi Teresa, Poor fruit production is usually due to poor pollination not a reflection on the cultivar or the seeds. You can find out more in the learn more tab on this product page. Please don't hesitate to reach out for help troubleshooting growing issues.
