Thanks HollyberryLady! ! I have grown white scallop and it's very prolific!!! I chose the yellow patty pan this year because my husband prefers it's sweeter flavor.
I try to add something new each year to expose my boys to different things!

RaccoonBandit, cocozelle is an Italian heirloom zucchini type squash. It grows just like regular green zucchini except it is more slender and is green with creme colored striping. It's very delicate tasting. It also seems to grow for a longer season and has higher yields then any other squash I've ever grown. I'll try to put a picture in my album for you.

Wow, you're a real squash-lover, eh Gardennnerd? Your varieties sound amazing.


Love to see pics of that Italian type.
