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? Flavor, disease resistance

What are the cons? Nothing to dislike

Review:

I'm in Zone 6a along the western front of the Allegheny Mountains. It rained here constantly during the summer of 2017 when I first tried this variety. Everyone in the area complained that their summer squash failed early. I lost all of my zucchini, for example, after harvesting just a single fruit. This yellow crookneck, however, was unfazed and produced flavorful fruits all the way through September and into October. I had a bit of mildew on it, but not much, and no signs of the blights that caused my other zucchini to collapse in a heap. This is an old-fashioned yellow squash with lots of flavor, so I can also recommend it in that regard. I'll definitely be planting this one again.

What are the pros? Package was nice

What are the cons? Got nothing

Review:

I tried to plant these twice. Both times, the seeds came up and put out a few leaves that were a bit yellowish and small. They never got more than about 4 inches high with leaves about 2 inches wide. Everything else I planted that year did fantastic. Not sure what was wrong. But needless to say, wasn't a fan.

What are the pros? Flavor, appearance, hearty

Review:

We interplanted these with nasturtiums and had a very good yield. Sweet, perfect flavor. We like to cut them up in 1/2 inch cubes and saut? in butter until starting to brown. Add chopped onion after a few minutes, and cook until fairly soft, Southern style.

What are the pros? Hope for Buttery nutty flavor

What are the cons? N/A

Review:

I haven't purchased any seed yet, but I plan to next year. I have been so disappointed in Crookneck lately. They all taste like zucchini. No buttery nutty flavor like before. I have even bought heirloom seeds and they look great, but no taste. The sad part is, they look just like the old crookneck with all the bumps and curved neck, but not the taste. I'm looking forward to trying these next summer.

Review:

I grow this squash from year to year. I love the different shape and color of the variety. First year it produced so much squash I cannot use, so I left the rest on the field. Some of the ripen fruits were ploughed. Next year I noticed dozen of new squash seedlings coming up. This heirloom is a true survivor. In Hungary this squash has a medium growing season.
