Squash Seed, Summer. Organic Yellow Crookneck. Pkt.

$3.99

New! 50 days. Heirloom. (Cucurbita pepo) This old favorite hardly needs an introduction! This bush-habit summer squash type remains virtually unchanged since pre-Columbian times, when it was grown by indigenous peoples of the mid-Atlantic region. Smooth to slightly warted, bright yellow fruit with signature recurved necks are produced abundantly over a long season. Best when harvested young, at about 5-6” in length, when the white, fine-textured white flesh is at its most flavorful. Left to mature, the warts become much more prominent, the color changes to deep yellow-gold, and the shells harden, making the fully developed fruit fine for fall decorations as well. 280 seeds/oz Pkt (~15 seeds), plants 8′
