Old variety with a great taste! Bush type plant produces heavy yields of straight, 6-12"L, smooth, mottled medium green-gray fruits with silvery speckles. Best harvested at 5-7"L. Fine quality flesh, delicious flavor, small seeds. Very heat resistant, adaptive and thrive in dry arid regions. One of the most attractive summer squashes for Fresh Markets, Home Gardens and Shipping.
Pollination occurs by insect, bird, wind, humans, or other natural mechanisms. Because there are no restrictions on the flow of pollen between individuals, open-pollinated plants are more genetically diverse. However, as long as pollen is not shared between different varieties within the same species, then the seed produced will remain true-to-type year after year.
