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.

Great squash for vertical gard

What are the pros? Easy squash to grow vertically

What are the cons? Can slow down during hot spell

Review:

I love how easy this squash is to grow. I have trained it straight up an 8 foot support and it grew taller then the support. You just have to be sure to provide enough support so the vine doesn't let the squash pull it down. In past years we grown them on an A frame support and it did well. This is our 7th year growing this variety and we love it each year. The taste is better when its small, so is the texture. Grows fast and produces well all summer long. It slows down during the hottest part of summer, then picks back up. We grew this variety when we lived in a 6B climate. We are now in an 8A climate and its doing just as well.

What are the pros? Delicious

What are the cons? A bit seedy when larger

Review:

These cute squash are absolutely delicious grilled with a just little olive oil, salt and pepper! We will definitely plant them again this year! The only downfall is they do become a bit seedy when they aren't picked when they are about the size of a light bulb.

What are the pros? Cute specimens

What are the cons? Little flavor and large seeds

Review:

The squash plant was HUGE in my children's garden and it produced many small, lemoned shaped squash, but you have to pick them when they're little or they become seedy and have tougher skins. The flavor wasn't that great either.
