I planted "early white bush scallop squash".
(White w/green stem looks like a UFO)
Have any of you grown this before and if so can you provide any personal info. to help my endeavors.
I also planted "Kohlrabi early white Vienna" ( looks like a very big radish) same would be appreciated.

I grew the bush scallop. I lived the squash from it and it did very well.

I haven't grown that variety of squash but have grown the kohlrabi. Be aware that the kohlrabi forms above the ground, not below. They are delicious when they're about the size of a tennis ball!

The scallop squash grows much like a zucchini and is prepared kind of the same. The kohlrabi is more of a winter crop, but give it a try, they are really good raw and have a mild turnip flavor, they can get 'woody', when they get much bigger than a tennis ball.

Thanks bolt and crista for the information. The kohlrabi are about 2" high.
