Squash – Golden Summer Crookneck
This yellow squash grows with a bent neck and slightly bumpy skin. This squash has a fine flavor and texture. Harvested young the flesh is and meat is very tender. If left to get big, it can kept for weeks at a time and best used in soups, casseroles and bakes.
Suggested Planting Requirements: Squash need deep mounds of organic matter, rich soil, and heavy, consistent watering. All squash are extremely frost sensitive, so use plastic mulches to heat soils in early spring and row covers to protect from frost at both ends of the growing cycle, especially in short growing seasons. Avoid overhead watering to prevent powdery mildew. Melody Mix can be planted in 20” container if space is limited.
Growing Recommendations: Start seeds indoors 3-4 weeks before the last frost, or sow seed directly once soils are at least 70°F. Row covers can be utilized for a pest barrier as birdies and bunnies love munching on squash. As with most cucurbits, mounding provides optimal growing area.
Harvesting & Storage: Harvest when 4″-7″ to keep production high, and for best flavor. Fruit may be stored for several months.
