Golden Crookneck Squash
Certified Organic Seed
Classic heirloom yellow squash variety for the summer garden.
Golden Crookneck is the staple of the summer squash universe. It yields small squashes for weeks as long as you keep harvesting them when young. Each little fruit has a delightful little curve to its skinny neck, followed by a swollen body. Tasty and versatile in the kitchen, these squash become a bit less pleasant after reaching 6-8 inches in length; by 10-12 inches they should be quickly removed and composted.

Summer squash needs little pampering and yields tons of tasty, summery fruit. Sow about 24 inches apart in a row at a depth of about an inch the third or fourth week of May. Or, start squash three weeks earlier under protection for quickest yields; seeds sown in soil blocks transplant easily.
If you harvest plants regularly, when the fruit are at a fairly young stage, they will continue to produce additional squash for weeks, even months. However, squash plants often begin to look ragged, succumbing to mildews and other diseases that slow down production. It's best to make two additional sowings at one-month intervals to have summer squash available all season. Bush habit.
