My best producer with best disease resistance. Plant has produced from September through October with beautiful 7-14" fruits. I've made the most wonderful fried grated squash patties, squash bread, vegetable soups, and spaghetti sauce with this Lebanese variety that I purchased from Baker Creek Seeds. Hands down the most wonderful bush type plant I've ever raised!
