Summer Squash, Palestinian Mix
This is a pre-order. All pre-orders will be delivered when the season is just right for them. Summer Squash are planned to be delivered or available for pickup in mid-May.
This is a diverse group of summer squash that run from straight yellow to bright green to half-and-half. Originally coming to us from the Palestinian Heirloom Seed Library, this tasty squash is a testament to the power of spreading and saving seeds to preserve endangered varieties.
Summer Squash: A true garden ‘giver’! Summer squash are super abundant low growing bushes that can give plenty over and over again during the hottest months of the year. They tend to get pretty large - 24 inches tall and 36 inches wide - so find a good open corner of the garden but they are well worth devoting the area to them.
Growing Tips: Summer Squash loves deep, rich garden soil so make sure to work in a couple scoops of compost before planting. I strongly recommend planting the seedlings into a mound of soil about 8 inches high to help the soil drain well.
