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. Transplant seedlings 24 inches apart. Harvest frequently so that plants continue to produce throughout the summer months.
