This super-productive and high-yielding warm weather annual veggie will provide you with a delicious bounty. Summer squash plants are fast growing and usually easy to care for. They don’t spread as much as their winter squash relatives, which saves you room for more diversity in your garden. These squash grow large leaves and bright yellow flowers, which are either male or female, and require pollination by insect or hand. Both the flowers and fruits are edible. True to their name, summer squash will not tolerate frosts, but take note that they also aren’t too keen on extreme heat, either.
Benning’s Green Tint squash is an open-pollinated, heirloom, scallop or pattypan squash variety. Tender fruits have a light green disc-like shape with scalloped edges and taste best when harvested at or under 4″ in diameter. Easy to grow, this variety makes a good choice for container gardens due to its compact size. For best results and to prevent pest takeover, plant in succession throughout the growing season, removing older plants as yields begin to decrease.
