White Lebanese Bush Summer Squash
(100% Heirloom/Non-Hybrid/Non-GMO)

  • The Lebanese Squash is a very popular heirloom squash variety that grows extremely quickly - only 45 days!

    - Very flavorful and widely grown in the Middle East.

    - A summer squash variety from Lebenon.


    - Grows as a compact bush size plant (not as a vine).

    - Fast-growing summer squash produces large yields.

    - Perfect for growing in small spaces.

The Lebanese, White Squash is a favorite amoung many home gardeners. Most would recommend planting 2-4 bushes to feed a family throughout the season, while for smaller families or couples, 2 plants would be plenty. It really depends on how much squash you love to eat and whether or not you're growing other varieties at the same time. We do however recommend planting at least two plants for better pollination. The better the pollination, the better the fruit count! It's been reported that some gardeners have experienced up to 15 fruits per plant, however, that is on the high side. Most plants will produce 4-6 fruit, again depending on the pollination and other variables that come into play. There's just not an exact answer for this. You're almost at the mercy of mother nature on this, but most would agree it's a great producer! They're better picked when young and tender unless you're planning on stuffing them, then baking. In that case, they are let to grow larger, again, which will keep the plant from producing more fruit if you don't harvest regularly from them. So the bottom line is, if you want more fruit, harvest more regularly and when the squash is young and tender. This will send signals to the plant to bloom and flower again to keep reproducing. Generally, this plant will get 2-3 feet high, but regular fertilizing would, of course, alter these numbers as well. If your soil is in good condition with lots of healthy organic matter, you should have no problem getting plants that reach this size. May we suggest growing on black plastic for weed & insect control?

  • Day to Maturity | 45 days

  • Best Months to Plant  |   Summer squash love the sun and can't get enough of it.  They are warm-season crops and are sensitive to cold/frost. Plant your seeds as soon as the soil has warmed.
