Bright yellow cylindrical fruits with bright green stems make a pretty picture in the garden. Fruit is best picked at 17 cm (7″) by 3 cm (1.5″) size when they are firm and straight with little curving or bulbing. Great tasting creamy white flesh makes this prolific producer a real winner.
How to Grow
10 seed/gram Summer squash are a hot weather crop. As such they need full sun and warm, deep, rich, well drained, organic soil with a pH of 5.5 to 6.5. Before planting, work in lots of compost. Directly plant seed outdoors from late May to mid June 2.5 cm (1″) deep in hills 2.4 m (8′) apart with 4-6 seeds per hill. After germination, thin to 3 plants per hill. Seed can be started indoors 3 weeks before the plant out date. Squash do not transplant well–use paper or fibre pots that can be set directly in the soil. Protect mature squash from frost and cold.
