A yellow crookneck that produces heavy yields of excellent-quality fruit. Grows so fast that it "beats the heat!" First picking is only 41 days after seed is sown. Vigorous, medium-size bush is "well behaved." Has a strong open habit allowing air movement to pass through, which reduces disease pressure. Hybrid vigor produces gigantic yields of high-quality, 5 to 6-in. long fruits that are early, uniform, shiny yellow and hold well after picking.

  • Summer squash ripens during the hot summer months and, thin-skinned, is best eaten fresh. Sow seeds 1 inch deep directly into the garden after the danger of frost is past. Thin the seedlings to 24 inches apart, or plant several seeds in hills 4 feet apart and then thin to 2 plants per hill. For even earlier harvests, start seeds indoors and transplant the seedlings as soon as they have 2 sets of true leaves and the spring soil has warmed up. Harvest frequently so that plants continue to produce throughout the summer months. Plant again in midsummer for a fall crop.
