Cucurbita pepo (hybrid)
‘Emerald Delight’ was developed with a more compact, open growing habit, to make it easier to spot those elusive, tasty squash. Home-grown squash is first-rate, and one of the most versatile of vegetables. Plants are resistant to powdery mildew, zucchini yellow mosaic virus, and watermelon mosaic virus 2. Compact vines form a bush type plant 2′ tall and 3′-4′ wide. Botanical Interests’® Emerald Delight Summer Squash Seeds have been verified by The Non-GMO Project.
