Variety: Baby Soft Squash

Variety Overview

This bright yellow vegetable, also called patty pan squash, brings the texture of summer squash together with the look of a winter squash, as its vibrant yellow skin is reminiscent of summer squash while the shape feels more like a hard squash. They are delicate with a high moisture content. They are small enough to be grilled or cooked whole, but large enough that they can be stuffed for a small appetizer.
