Another summer squash that I am growing this year is called Dirani. It has pale green skin with white freckles and creamy flesh.
Dirani grows in a compact bush format and will reach 36 inches wide. It is best to pick the squash when it is about 7 inches long. It matures in about 50 days.
If you missed my prior squash post, check out the darker green zucchini called Black Beauty that I am growing. Dirani and Black Beauty are similar in that they have thin and tender skin. There is a big difference between them since Dirani is a hybrid and Black Beauty is an heirloom. Since Dirani is a hybrid, you can’t save the seed for next year. Bummer!
