Description

Summer Squash - Early Crookneck - Cucurbita pepo

Tender Annual This is the best summer squash for buttery, rich flavor and tender but firm texture. The plants are highly productive and produce semi-open, smooth, light-yellow fruits with a curved neck. This versatile squash is excellent fresh, steamed, sautéed, or grilled. Makes a flavorful baby vegetable.

Did You Know? This is a Native American summer squash dating back to before European contact.

Soil & Water: Provide squash plants with deep mounds of organic matter, rich soil, and heavy, even water. All squash are extremely frost sensitive, so use mulch to heat soils in early spring and row covers to protect from frost at both ends of the growing cycle, especially in short growing seasons.

Planting & Growing: Start seeds indoors 3-4 weeks before the last frost, or sow seed directly once soils are at least 70F. Use row covers to provide a physical barrier to insects.

Harvesting & Storage: Pick squash when they are 4"-7" long to keep production high, and for best flavor.
