Grey Griller Squash

Grey Griller Squash


C. pepo 38 days. Hold the burgers, Grey Griller is stealing the barbeque scene. These boxy fruit are meaty and firm, ideal for slicing into thick slabs and throwing on the grill. Dressed up with marinade and cheese, or dressed down with just a little drizzle of olive oil and balsamic vinegar, Grey Griller makes a crowd-pleasing meal! At 7 inches long and 3 1/2 inches wide this pistachio-colored squash has tasty, creamy flesh. The low profile plants set fruit very early and keep them coming after many other squash varieties have succumbed to powdery mildew. PM, ZYMV.

Cucurbita spp.: In the diverse family of squash are true nutritional powerhouses, encompassing a wide array of forms, flavors, colorations, and culinary applications. Squash are rich in the carotenoids necessary for vitamin A production and boast a wide complement of amino acids. While starchy, most of the carbohydrates in the fruit come from special polysaccharides, pectins, which have exhibited strong antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-diabetic, insulin-regulating properties. Summer squash are a typically prolific garden classic.

CULTURE: Squash and pumpkins prefer good fertile soil and plenty of sunshine. Start indoors or in a greenhouse 3-4 weeks prior to your last frost. Sow in a 3 inch Peat or Cow Pot for direct transplanting. For best results transplant prior to the second set of true leaves. Plant the entire Peat or Cow Pot with no part of the pot exposed to the air. Work 1/2 cup of our complete fertilizer into the soil around each plant. For direct sowing, plant after your last frost and when the soil has warmed to at least 60°F. Sow with 3-4 feet between bush varieties, and 4-5 feet between vining varieties. Distance between rows: 6-10 feet. Squash need just-barely-damp soil to germinate. Too much moisture causes the seed to rot. All squash are monoecious (bearing separate male and female flowers on the same plant), and most require bee and insect activity for successful pollination. Poor fruit set is often the result of poor pollination.
INSECTS/PESTS: The major insect pests are the spotted and striped cucumber beetles, vine borers and squash bugs. Use row covers and/or apply Pyrethrin to reduce and control damage. Butternut varieties have a solid stem and are resistant to vine borer damage.
DISEASES: Squash are susceptible to a number of fungal, bacterial, and viral diseases that vary between regions. Your local county extension agent can help you pinpoint your particular problem.
HARVEST: Pick baby summer squash as well as the more mature ones. In general, summer squash are most tender and flavorful when very young. Winter squash are best left on the vine until fully mature. It should require quite a bit of pressure before your fingernail pierces through the rind into the flesh. For the best sugar content, cut the stem an inch or so from the body after the first light frost, and if the weather is dry, let them cure in the field. If temperatures drop below 25°F, bring your harvest inside and store in a cool dry location.
SEED SPECS: Minimum germination standard: 75%. Usual seed life: 3-4 years. Days to maturity: from date of direct seeding; if transplanting, subtract 10 days.

Vigorous and tasty

This squash has huge seeds that grow quickly into vigorous plants early in the season. Then it pumps out sweet, tasty squash for about two months (in the Seattle area in my hands). It's every bit as productive as zucchini so I'm glad I only planted one! True to its name, it's great on the grill. My only complaint is that it got powdery mildew and lost productivity in mid-August.

I tried slicing these and grilling them, but they turned to mush. Next, I tried baking them...soupy, no flavor. I'll stir fry next and see what happens. I may just dig them up and toss them. Not worth the space they take up.

Last season was not a good one, so I'm sure our squash would have been better with less rain. But the zucchini, right next to these guys, were much more flavorful and dense. Our grey grillers were gigantic, very spongy and wet, no flavor, and no good for grilling. Probably should have harvested sooner, but even pretty small they weren't good for much. Will use the garden space for something else this year.
Plant this one!

I planted in an earthbox. These are delicious grilled or in ratatouille. The squash just keep coming. I picked them at 5 inches. This one I'll plant again next year.
