One of the advantages of growing your own garden,   or shopping “Farmers Market First” is the variety of produce. There are just some heirloom vegetables that cannot tolerate the rough process of shipping.

Heirloom Summer Squash

Stuffed Summer Squash Recipe Ronde De Nice

Ronde de Nice is one of those heirloom summer squash you are not going to find at the box stores. They are delicate. They bruise easy. But they will grow and produce in your garden at an amazing rate! A bush type squash, these would be fine for container gardening or in small raised beds.

Ronde de Nice produces a round squash. Some harvest them small, at 2-3 inches in diameter. This is our first year growing the French delight, and we have been harvesting them at about 4-6 inches in diameter.

Ronde de Nice has a delicate flavor, with a very tender flesh. There is a very subtle sweetness that makes these little babies coveted by chefs in the know. I am no chef; just a chick in a big red hat who values heritage vegetables.

Try some Ronde de Nice summer squash with your favorite recipe for stuffing. Charlie baked these cuties this weekend, the first of our Ronde de Nice pickings.
