(Cucurbita pepo)

50 days —  'Caserta' is a prolific, early, bush, cocozelle-type summer squash.  It produces cylindrical, slightly tapered, fruits that have creamy flesh and skins that are light-green with dark-green stripes.  Best harvested at four to six inches in length which also helps to encourage more growth and productivity.

'Caserta' was bred at the University of Connecticut, introduced by F. H. Woodruff and Sons, and an "All-America Selection®" winner in 1949. Each packet contains three grams, which is approximately 20 seeds.
Customer Reviews Average Rating review
Impressive and vigorous ... enjoyed them very much.
Planted indoors in March and transplanted a month later, 'Caserta' was bearing vigorously by June. Be careful, though; 'Caserta' apparently responds very badly to crowding! Squash bugs are a huge problem across cultivars in my region, but 'Caserta' has been our top performer two years running despite the horrid little egg-laying things. We picked the fruit small and enjoyed them very much.
