70 days. Balmoral is a space-saving Pattypan Squash with a unique fruit set: the big, scalloped white fruits arise along the stems, like Brussels Sprouts! Instead of the plant sprawling, it grows in a neat and compact fashion, studded with huge 6- to 8-inch-diameter pattypans!

When grown in containers, this plant reaches about 2 feet high and wide. In the garden, it will be somewhat larger (3 to 4 feet). A summer squash with mild flavor, Balmoral grows readily and sets very high yields.
