Meet piccolo...

The Territorial Seed catalog says "a melt-in-your-mouth marrow squash with a unique new shape. Piccolo will hit the high notes in all your summer meals. The round to oblong fruit has eye-catching, dark and light green striping and creamy colored flesh. At tennis ball size, they look like mini watermelons and are tender and delicious. Healthy, productive plants provide a summer full of delectable harvests."

While it is a cute little guy, I can only hope they'll be as productive as hinted here. Here it is, August 8,and I've only just picked the first one! There's another, smaller fruit on the vine, and hints of more blooms coming we'll see how it goes.
