Unique appearance for easy recognition.
Distinctive, slender fruits are yellow with faint white stripes and light-green blossom ends. Harvest young at 4-6" for unusually delicious, nutty flavor and firm texture. Vigorous, high-yielding plants.
• Edible Flowers: Blossoms bear a mild, squash-like flavor and are great stuffed and fried, or sliced for use in soups, omelets, salads, and pasta dishes.
Fertile, well-drained soil with a pH of 5.8–6.8 is best. 18"-24" spacing.
