Squash 'Papaya Pear'
2003 AAS Vegetable Award Winner
The first summer squash with a shape similar to a tropical papaya fruit. The bright yellow squash looks like a light bulb with the widest section near the blossom end. One of the earliest varieties, 'Papaya Pear' fruit can be harvested in about 40 days from sowing seed. The semi-bush plant requires less garden space. For plants that yield squash continuously, pick 'Papaya Pear' at a young stage when about 3 inches long and 2 to 3 inches wide. Easy to grow in any garden with full sun.
