Zephyr Summer Squash (F1 Hybrid, 54 Days )

10 reviews

Two tone, slender fruits are light yellow with faint white stripes and have a distinctive pale green blossom end, which can vary in hue and size. A one of a kind hybrid squash with crookneck, delicata and acorn squash in its family genes. Harvest at 4-6 inches for a delicate,  nutty flavor.

20 seeds


Cucurbita pepo

Germination: 4-10 days

Germination Temperature: Optimum soil temperatures 70-85ºF

Seed Sowing Depth: 1/2-1" deep

Sowing Indoors: 3-4 weeks before last frost. Provide 70-85ºF soil temperature. Sow 2-3 seeds per cell/pot. Sowing into individual biodegradable peat/cow pots reduces root damage when transplanting. Transplant 36-48" apart after last frost. 

Sowing Outdoors: Sow after last frost when soil temperature is over 70ºF. Sow a few seeds every 36-48". 

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.

Great Company!

Very easy, either online, fax or mail. I've bought from Pinetree Garden for more than 10 years and had excellent results.

Zephyr squash

I really like Zephyr - tender, flavorful, and pretty to boot! This is my second year growing it. First year it got shaded out by the tall tomatoes so hoping for more yield this year!!

Very productive

Sprouted quickly and out produced all of the other squash varieties I grew. I even planted a second round after the squash bugs took out all of the squash . I harvested until late October.

Didn't germinate

We realize that we started the seeds late in the season but only ordered them because they were suppose to be unappealing to the squash vine borer. We planted one hill with 3 seeds and nothing happened. No Sprouts. Temps have dropped. Will try again next year.
