This lovely white patty-pan squash is favored by gardeners for being easy to grow on bushy plants (not too large) and having creamy and mild flavor. Most people don't consider them to be heirlooms, but patty-pan-type squash were historically grown by Lenape peoples and their relatives in the Mid-Atlantic region. They are the same species (C. pepo) as orange pumpkins and zucchinis, so will cross with those, but will not cross with butternuts (C. moschata) or most winter squash like Hubbards and kabochas (C. maxima). These fruit make great baby squash.
