Hi Salt,

I'll be growing F2 seed of my Lemon X Tatume cross. You can see more about my project here if you haven't already http://www.tomatoville.com/showthread.php?t=31187

Basically I crossed Lemon and Tatume to try to come up with an even better climbing summer squash. Goals of the project are a good climbing, tasty and productive summer squash, insect resistance and mildew resistance a plus. We enjoyed the F1 last year as summer squash. The F1 matured to small-medium Orange pumpkin looking things, a lot like their mother Tatume.

In addition to those Ill be growing a couple bush summer squash.

If you'd like some of my cross seed I'd be happy to send you some. I've got both F1 and F2. Hopefully after this year I'll have one or two F3 varieties that seem worthy of following.
