Remember the Cymlin?

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 just mentioned patty pan squash to someone. Haven't had it in years. One of my favorite. I'm new to south Florida, can it be grown here?

It will grow where any other type of summer squash will grow. In south Florida you grow it in winter. http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/pi046 South Florida is a major winter supplier of fresh summer squash during the winter months.
