All-America Selections (AAS) Winner 1985

Delightful scalloped (pattypan) squash the size of teacups ran away with All-America Selection honors when it was introduced in 1985, and 30+ years later it is still stealing our heart. This charming summer squash has the perfect combination of firm and tender texture, not to mention a sweet, mild taste.

Bright yellow scalloped fruit is marked in fresh green at both ends, and sports huge flowers that can be eaten as well. The mild, buttery 3 by 2 inch fruits remain firm but very tender, even at full maturity. They are great for stuffing, because the rinds really hold up to cooking, yet never become tough.

If you are new to growing scalloped squash, prepare yourself for a treat. Kids love these little "flying saucers," and they are just the right size for a single serving of nutritious veggies, whether you stuff them, slice them, chop them, or steam them whole. Pick Sunburst young and steam it whole—the flavor is incredible. Each plant brings you several dozen fruits, and they harvest in no time. So easy, so enjoyable, such unbeatable plate appeal.

Summer squash ripens during the hot summer months and, thin-skinned, is best eaten fresh. Sow seeds 1 inch deep directly into the garden after the danger of frost is past. Thin the seedlings to 24 inches apart, or plant several seeds in hills 4 feet apart and then thin to 2 plants per hill. For even earlier harvests, start seeds indoors.

This season, why not try a Three Sisters planting? This Native American combination planting uses beans, corn, and squash (sometimes including a fourth sister, sunflower) to help one another grow their best. The beans climb the corn stalks, and the squash foliage shades the roots of the beans and corn while keeping weeds down. Sunburst would be a fun addition to any Three Sisters planting.
