50-60 days. One of the most unusual and beautiful squash, with a buttery texture and nutty flavor. Clear lemon-yellow fruit is a patty-pan type, but with a bizarre twist. Fruit is oddly flattened—impossible to describe. These highly productive bush plants will yield over a long season. This unique variety originated in Gatersleben, Germany, and performs well in a variety of climates. The alien-shaped fruit will mature to a pretty golden color. This tasty variety is delicious when eaten raw, or it can be cooked to bring out even more depth of flavor. Can be used both as a summer squash or a winter squash, but we have found it is best as a summer squash. The mature fruit make stunning fall decorations.
