Early Summer Crookneck Squash

These compact bush-type plants are prolific producers and will fill your garden with swan-necked fruit in shades of yellow that mature to a light orange. The skin of the fruit will be slightly warted, but when you cut it open you will find smooth creamy-white flesh. This rich flesh is gloriously sweet and buttery.

For optimal flavor, we recommend you pick your squash when it is 5-6" long. 


Crookneck squash are a North American institution. Native Americans domesticated the Crookneck long before the Pilgrims stepped ashore. It was best used as a tender young squash and as a warty old rattle or seedstores. 


It is used fresh, grilled, or cooked.


Sow 5 seeds per hill, 4' apart. Thin to the best 2-3 plants. Squash seeds dislike cold soil. It's better to wait until the soil is warm to plant the seeds.

From the soil to the seed to the food you eat - we'll help you grow your best garden!

    Planted this for the second time this year from seed. I am already seeing squash on it in less than one month. The first ones I grew this year were rather bland so I have amended my soil and am giving them a second chance. It just didn't have the flavor that I look forward to in a yellow squash.
