Cucurbita pepo

Gelber Englischer in an Heirloom patty pan squash variety originating from Gatersleben, Germany.  It grows as a compact bush, producing an abundance of yellow-maturing to orange fruit that has a sweet tender flavour.  The bush will yield over a long period of time if fruit is harvested regularly, best picked young at around 10cm diameter.  

This variety is suitable for cool climates, and may be grown in large pots.

Squash should be sown direct where it is to be planted, after frost, as it needs a warm soil to germinate.  Sow seed approx. 1.5cm deep, full sun, moist well drained soil, high in nitrogen, compost well.  Germination approx. 8 - 12 days.  Maturity approx. 50 - 70 days.
