Patty Pan

General

These standards apply only to squash which are picked in the immature stages of development and eaten without the removal of seeds and seed cavity tissue. Squash commonly used in this manner are yellow crookneck, yellow straightneck, white scallop (patty pan, cymling), zucchini, cocozelle, etc., each including one or more varieties.

Because of the size differences between varieties and the difference in size preference in various markets, there are no size requirements in the grades. However, if so desired, size may be specified in connection with the grade, in terms of minimum or maximum diameter or both, or minimum or maximum length or both. When size is specified it shall be stated in terms of inches and quarter inches.
