Formerly Tatume Mix
Vining- Summer Squash- cv Tatume Mix (C. pepo)
This is a mixture of our dark green, light green, yellow and white oval squash. The parent of all these lines is Tatume, a very resilient green pumpkin from the southwest U.S. which we liked because of it's productivity even during hot and dry weather and resistance to insects and disease. Several years ago we crossed mother Tatume to the best tasting of our summer zucchini squash. These delightful oval squash are the children of Tatume. The vines are productive and the squash is widely acclaimed for slicing and grilling when young. They mature into an interesting assemblage of striped and mottled oval pumpkins which can be baked or used in hearty vegetable soups in native tradition.
