Summer Squash

Summer Squash

Many of these are also used for winter too! The species is C. pepo on all summer squash varieties listed here, unless otherwise noted. Summer Squash are grown for immature fruits which can be harvested all summer long. It's usually best to plant summer squash seeds right where they will be growing in the garden, at about the time of the last frost of spring, although they may be started earlier indoors and transplanted later, if handled carefully.
