Cucurbita pepo (hybrid)
This squash is perfect for the popular, Middle Eastern stuffed squash dish, Koosa (recipe inside packet). You’ll love ‘Dirani’ because of the plant’s compact habit and continuous production of fruits to enjoy all summer. Large leaves provide excellent coverage to protect fruits. Harvest when small for fresh use or allow them to grow larger for stuffing and baking. Use in any recipe calling for zucchini. Botanical Interests’® Dirani Summer Squash Seeds have been verified by The Non-GMO Project.
