Gill's Golden Pippin Squash
(Cucurbita pepo); Mini-acorn type; Heirloom; Hand-pollinated; Minimum 20 seeds
An exceptional squash in taste and productivity, Gill's Golden Pippin's single-serving size makes it easier to incorporate this nutritious, delicious squash into your menus. It was introduced to gardeners by Portland's Gill Brothers Seed company in 1952. In our Michigan gardens we harvested an average of 9 fruits per plant on relatively short vines that trellis well. The glorious golden lobed petite acorns mature early, keep well when properly cured, and are yummy roasted or stuffed. A family favorite wholesome snack!
