Plant Information
Introduced around 1700, Golden Summer Crookneck summer squash is a variety that's been popular for centuries. The classic, shiny yellow squash is a winner all by itself, and is also a trusted go-to ingredient for a variety of favorite recipes. The vigorous, bush-style plants produce heavy yields of pale yellow fruits with curved necks and bulbous bodies that definitely speak to their unique and full flavor. Their flesh is cream-colored and very tender with a sweet, buttery taste, and their skin is slightly bumpy at the perfect time for picking but will turn more orange and knobby when overripe. Golden Summer Crookneck summer squash is best picked when about 5-7 inches in length from neck to base and when the skin can easily be punctured. Eat them raw or cooked in countless ways, use them in baked goods, or even try them pickled.
