YELLOW CROOKNECK SUMMER SQUASH (55-60 days)

SKU:

Germ 7-10 days
Heirloom 1700s
This Native American summer squash is a very prolific heirloom with a buttery flavor and light yellow skin. Should be picked at 4-5” for the best taste. If you were to leave the squash on the plant until maturity they get large and have ornamental warted rinds ideal for fall decoration. 20 seeds

PLANTING:

Indoors- Plant in individual biodegradable peat/cowpots 1/2”-1” deep, 3-4 weeks before last frost with soil temperature 70 degrees. Transplant 36” apart after last frost without disturbing the roots

Outdoors- 1/2”-1” deep after last frost, in warm soil at least 70 degrees. Sow a few seeds per space/hill with 24-36”.

Harvest- Check and harvest a few times a week. Cut or kindly twist off fruit, starting at a 3-4”.

Tips- Plant in fertile soil amended with compost or well rotted manure and keep well watered. They benefit from growing on black plastic and by using row covers for weed, insect control, and more rapid growth. Fertilize on a regular basis by watering with compost tea. Sow every few weeks for a continuous supply.
