Plant Information
An "All-America Selections" winner that was introduced in the 1930s, Early Prolific Straightneck remains one of the most popular summer squash varieties. It's a fantastic choice for gardeners who want a squash crop that's easy to grow, fast to mature, and very prolific (and what gardener doesn't?). The bush-style plants spread out vine-like to become as large as 3 feet wide and almost as tall. A rather early producer and very generous yielder, hence the "Prolific" in its name, this early straightneck summer squash bears beautiful, club-shaped, sunshine-yellow fruits that are 8-10 inches in length. Although nearly a foot when fully mature, Early Prolific Straightneck summer squash tastes best when harvested a bit younger at approximately 4-6 inches in length, when the flesh is fine-grained and at its most tender. Keep picking your squash every few days to encourage new growth.
