Product Information Chevron Down Chevron Forward

An All-American Selection! This popular, exceptionally productive variety of summer squash bears fruits that can be eaten when 10-30 cm (4-12") long. The thick, fine-grained flesh is tender and delicious. Pick when 10-18 cm (4-7") for best flavor. Tip: Squash is over-mature if the skin cannot be easily punctured by your thumbnail. Pick regularly so the squash will continue to form.
