Summer squash is harvested when the squashes are immature, while the rind is still tender and edible. All our summer squash packets contain between 30 to 50 seeds, our ounces contain 200, and our pounds contain about 3200 seeds. We always put a little more than these numbers to account for any broken or if dropped. This ensures you get what you pay for. You will want to order these Heirloom, Non-GMO, beyond organic seeds! Happy growing!!!
