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.

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.

What are the pros? Grew easy, pretty looking

What are the cons? Too mushy, poor storage

Review:

These grew prolific and pretty, but I would not grow them again. They are quite mushy. We like very firm squash like Costata Romanesco Zucchini. These were just too mushy and would start rotting as soon as picked. I usually get a day or two of storage from my other types. My sister grows down the street and she loves these however. Different tastes for diferent people.

What are the pros? flavor

What are the cons? none

Review:

This is the squash that my mother and grandmother grew. It has a wonderful flavor with skin and pulp cooking well. Even when oversized they cook up nicely with no stringiness, fiberness, or tough peel.
