Vegetable Marrow (1824)

First appeared in North America in Thorburn’s catalogue of 1824 and was one of the first marrow type squash grown in England. The 1908 Mckenzie Seed catalogue from Brandon, Manitoba wrote "Excellent quality, fine grained and delicious." This claim can still be made today. The white oblong squash are about 1ft long at maturity but are most tender at the 4" stage. At this stage they can be eaten with the skin, seeds and all; they can still be eaten when larger but will then require peeling. The flavor is very delicate and mellow; some describe it as buttery. The vegetable marrow is truly an old fashioned vegetable that is not commonly grown any more. I can remember my grandmother growing Vegetable Marrow when I was a child. Very productive and early. Bush plant. (50 days)

White Scallop Squash (pre 1591)

(a.k.a. Cymling, Custard Marrow, Patisson Panache) An ancient summer squash that was a traditional food crop of the northeastern tribes for centuries. In 1591, the White Scallop Squash was illustrated in the French botanist Matthias de l’Obel’s Plantarum seu Stirpium Icones. In 1648, it was called Symnel but in 1803, Thomas Jefferson wrote it as cymling. This squash was called cymling because it looked similar to a simnal cake which was a type of cake made during Lent. The squash was also known as Custard Marrow and Patisson Panache in France. Produces flat white fruit with scalloped edges that can be baked, fried or eaten raw with dips. Bush plant. (50 days)

Yugoslavian Finger Fruit (1884)

(a.k.a. Pineapple) James J. H Gregory first introduced this variety in 1884. According to Hedrick in The Cucurbits of New York (1935), "This was a peculiar looking variety offered by Landreth, Gregory, Burpee and others about 1884. The original seed was reputed to come from Chile." One of the most intriguing squash, the ivory colored fruit have many distinctive "wings". The squash can be eaten as a summer squash when young or left to mature to be an interesting conversation piece.
