Post #G21-031: An obvious marketing opportunity, missed.

Posted on June 5, 2021

I’m growing patty-pan squash for the first time this year.  In doing my research, I got all kinds of information about germination times, time to maturity, disease resistance, and so on.

What nobody bothered to tell me is how darned cute the fruit are.  At least, for this variety.  Based on what I’ve seen pictured, I was all set to harvest fruit that looked like some sort of alien starfish.  But mine are turning out to be cute little yellow pumpkins.  Seriously, I was expecting ugly, and I got this instead.
