Review:

It's nice to have a bunch of little cute ones that I can pick whenever versus giant ones that end up sitting on the counter too long.

Best Yellow Squash Ever

What are the pros? Easy to grow, prolific, taasty

What are the cons? Needs lots of space

Review:

This year I did a "trial" of six different squash varieties - 2 plants each of white pattypan, three different zucchinis, yellow crookneck, and this one. The Lemon Squash has far surpassed all the others in productivity. All started producing in early summer, and this squash is still putting on fruit in the middle of August, but only an occasional squash on the yellow crookneck and one zucchini. These are better picked at the Lemon size. At that stage, they have small seeds and taste like a crookneck squash minus the neck, and they are yummy cooked any way you'd traditionally cook yellow squash. When they get larger, about the size of a baseball, the seeds get larger and tough, but they are still good stuffed and baked. They grow fast, and if you don't keep watch, you'll find almost cantaloupe-sized ones that look like small yellow and orange striped pumpkins. I peeled and seeded them, minced finely, and along with some onions, turned them into squash relish. These are a must grow!

Survived a severe squash borer

What are the pros? Survived a squash borer attack

What are the cons? Just want more squash

Review:

This plant is unbreakable. There were at least 6 inches of the base stem affected by squash vine borer larvae and it has miraculously survived. It was attacked mid June here in the warm south. It's mid July and I've enjoyed three squash so far. My only wish is that it was bigger now, but I'm sure it put a lot of energy into recovering. I did some surgery on the soft spots that were affected and covered the base with composted manure.

Review:

It's my first time growing lemon squash and I love it. The plant has been prolific and easy to take care of. The squash themselves are delicious -- sweet and with a nice squash taste. I steam them and they taste wonderful.

What are the pros? almost everything

What are the cons? can take over your garden

Review:

Everyone should try at least 1 Lemon squash. Be sure to give them a lot of elbow room since they can swallow nearby plants. Once they finally get going, these guys can be huge so give them a corner of your garden so they can sprawl. Speaking of size, pick the fruit before it gets too big since they can be seedy and strongly-flavored when very large. When smaller, they're mild yet tasty with small seeds. One of the best things about Lemon squash is that squash bugs leave them alone. We were dealing with bugs on all our other squash last year. Not these. Bug free. Other summer squash grew quicker and germinated a bit better than Lemon but that doesn't mean you shouldn't try this one. It's worth the small extra effort to get it going and its many pluses far outweigh its small number of cons. Also, it needs lots of water but temperature fluctuations don't bother it in the least.
