SQUASH – Yellow Straightneck

(15 seeds)

$4.25

Golden summer squash with easy-slicing straight neck

Summer squash is a standby for veggie gardeners who enjoy a productive, relatively easygoing crop, and well fed, well-watered plants are capable of producing a substantial harvest. Yellow straightneck squash is good to eat at about 20cm in length, and the shape makes for convenient slicing. The rich, golden colour of the skin matches the flavour: nutty and creamy. Early sowings will need protection from frost, but once conditions are frost-free, summer squash will grow easily.
