Back when I was a barefooted kid, all the old folks grew cymlins. Sometimes they might use the term 10 toes, but the official name was cymlin. As I grew up and encountered new folks, I heard the term patty pan used. Today we usually know them as scallops. The White Bush was what folks grew in my youth.

|I have neither seen nor heard of cymlins before, despite having spent three years in the "South"...Oklahoma!! many years ago. They look very interesting. I wish I knew where I could try some out to taste, also how long a growing season they need, etc. We are snow birds, living in the land of 10 good months of ice-skating and two of slush (Minyuhsnowduh)!!! I will greatly appreciate info and suggestions!!|

|They are more like crooknecks and straight necks in growth. In the 40 to 50 day class. Like any other summer squash, they are used at a very young stage. Smaller plant than most zukes, altho the dark green ones have something of a zuke taste. They do tend to be drier than straighnecks or zucchini. They do cross pollinate as they are all in the same species.|
