Squash 'Crookneck Early Summer' (Organic)
Harvest the fruit when the squash is still young and tender and use it in any summer dish as you would zucchini or freeze to use throughout the winter.
Related to zucchini and equally prolific, seed germinates readily from 18°C–35°C in as little as 7-10 days. Sow in punnets and transplant after all likelihood of frost has passed. Plant in full sun in a fertile soil enriched with aged compost and decomposed manure. Can be trained up a trellis or support. Water regularly, but avoid overhead watering which can encourage mould and mildew.
