40 seeds. Early (45-55 days) ancient French heirloom variety. Young squashes are bright, lemon yellow, tender turning to saturated orange, strong and crunchy when ripen. Each stage has his own taste with a delicious nutty flavor. Use young, delicate, very sweet squashes up to 7.5cm (3in.) for roasting, grilling and pickling. When 12-15cm (5-6in.) they are great for toppings and soups with a zucchini like texture. Double culture for summer use and long-term (winter) storage.
