Squash 'Zapallito de Toscana', mid September. "Dark green to purple fruits with orange pulp. Smells like melon but has a more savoury flavour. This is a bush, rather than trailing, variety which reliably produces fruit for the summer or winter use, as it eventually develops a hard, waxy rind" [Heritage Seed Library].
