Paydon Acorn Squash - Annapolis Seeds - Nova Scotia Canada
Paydon Acorn Squash
Price: $3.00

(C. pepo) Large and rare, with the most exquisite flavour! Sweeter that most other acorns. The fruits turn from a speckled tan to yellow in storage. Vigorous vines.

Grown for numerous years by Yonder Hill Farm, who have selected for earliness. Their field notes show this strain has become noticeably earlier over the years.

Sweet Dumpling Squash - Annapolis Seeds - Nova Scotia Canada
Sweet Dumpling Squash
Price: $3.00

(C. pepo) One of my personal favourites. Small, flattened squash (imagine a cross between delicata and acorn) produced very heavily on short vines. The sweet dry flesh reminds me of roasted chestnuts. A single squash is the perfect size for one person; I like to simply halve them and bake them. The skin is tender enough to eat too. 20 seeds

Zeppelin Delicata Squash

Nippon Island Squash - Annapolis Seeds - Nova Scotia Canada
Nippon Island Squash
Price: $3.00

(C. mixta) This Japanese cushaw squash averages 7 pounds. Fruits are dark green, with occasional streaks of orange. The moist yellow flesh is my absolute favourite in soups; it’s not a very sweet squash so makes a delicious savoury soup. They’re also good fried.

This variety was introduced to North America in 1884 by Samuel Wilson of Pennsylvania. The most unique feature of this squash are the natural markings and scratches on the seed coat, which are said to resemble calligraphy (at least to an untrained western eye). Each seed is like a work of art. 20 seeds

Butterbush Squash (Sold out for 2018)
Price: $3.00

(C. moschata) Extra long-necked butternut squash. Filled with rich, sweet, orange flesh. The fruit can grow to length of over 24", and the extra neck means more flesh and less seed cavity! The vines are fairly compact, not exactly a true bush squash, but less sprawling than most butternuts. 20 seeds
