The Patidoux squash comes in yellow, green, and white varieties.
It is a tender summer squash, like zucchini or yellow squash. The squash is most tender when relatively immature; it is generally served when it is no more than two to three inches in diameter.
Patidoux is a good source of magnesium, niacin, and vitamins A and C.
