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

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
