•Yellow Crookneck Summer Squash (Cucurbita pepo): A prolific summertime vegetable! Great for beginner gardeners — at peak season, you’ll likely find more squash to harvest on a daily basis! Great cooked with tomatoes and other summertime veggies. Also try “zoodles” (summer squash or zucchini spiralized into noodle shapes and dressed with your favorite pasta sauce!)
•Shipping: Shipped in a standard letter via USPS without tracking. Seed packet and envelope are made of 100% recycled paper.
•About Our Farm: While we are not certified organic, we do follow vegan organic (veganic) practices (no pesticides, no chemical fertilizers, and no domesticated animal inputs; just compost and love). All of our seeds are open-pollinated and were grown in Western North Carolina.
•Growing Instructions: Sow outdoors 2-5 weeks after your last frost date in the spring, spacing them at least 15” apart. Keep the soil moist and they should germinate in 5-10 days. Once flowers develop, pollination will begin, which will allow squash to develop. You can eat and cook with the flowers too, but this may limit the amount of squash your plant will be able to produce. You should harvest squash when they are about 6” long for the best flavor and texture. Fruits are harvestable, on average, 41 days after planting. Keep harvesting on a daily basis to encourage your plants to keep producing all summer long. Squash plants do not tolerate frosts well, so be sure to finish harvesting before the first frost in the fall.
