Some call these Patty Pan and some call these White Custard Squash. Also, called Summer Squash. And, yet we see them in the Fall and Winter? The designation Summer and Winter Squash was historically a “keeper” disambiguation. Which ones to eat fresh and which ones (the ones with the tougher skins) could be stored away for winter survival. Almost all squash like to be sown in warm soil, but, we save and savor these beauties for later. Beauties they are. They look nice on the windowsill. They look nice on the dining table. They look nice in the provencial pie safe in the hall. They look nice in the garden, too.
