50 days. An old favorite heirloom, this is one of the oldest types of squash dating back to pre-Columbus times and has been popular ever since. Easy to grow and good tasting.

What are the pros? Fast growing

What are the cons? bugs galore

Review:

This was the first variety of squash we tried to grow. It started quickly, grew beautifully, produced a bit, then died suddenly and horrifically. Squash bugs found it very quickly and so we tried to combat them with organic control to no avail. Then the Squash Vine Borer made its presense known and bam, the squash died overnight. I think if you can cover them with a screen and have more time to squash bugs (pun!) then you should be fine. We are weeknight and weekend gardeners and just couldn't keep up.

Review:

I started these in May in peat pots. Then transferred to a raised bed. The plants stayed compact like bush zucchini. The started producing in mid July. Every few days I harvest more. I like them young, about 1 foot long. Delicious sliced thin using a mandolin, placed on food dehydrator plates, brushed with olive oil / garlic paste and dusted with salt and pepper, dried overnight. I can eat a whole squash worth in one sitting. Also delicious cooked as a stir fry. They taste buttery without adding butter. I want to grow these forever. They are excellent!

Very prolific, hardy and delicious. Produced much longer than any other yellow squash I've every grown without being decimated from powdery mildew. My favorite crookneck by far.

Review:

We had a late start in planting this year. Wow is the my first word for this plant!!I couldn't believe how huge the plants got. It is now early august and i have cooked this squash almost everyday. The blooms and fruit are so many. From 1 seed pack we had 100% germination. Everyday we pick any where from 8 to 14 of these. I have canned, fried, & casserole everything delicious. Will be saving seed for next year. What a wonderful scrumptious squash !!

Review:

It's the end of April and my Yellow Crooknecks are already almost fully grown and will soon be setting. These plants are powerhouses!! They are very large non-vining plants, about as big around as a trashcan lids, 15-18in' tall. Their close, salad plate-sized leaves shade out any and all grass and weeds. Plant them in beds within 2 feet of each other, and you won't even need to put weed barrier under them. Their 'fruits' have a very mild, sweet, nutty flavor, and are good fried, or added to soups and stews. I've been growing these for years, and have never had a problem with pests or diseases. The only thing I dislike about them is that they are rather short lived. They produce for a few weeks and then are gone by the time the dog days of summer set in. However, they produce in *massive* quantities! Be careful - you'll be eating squash with every meal if you plant too many.
