Early Summer Crookneck Organic Squash Seeds

Select Item


Bush habit just 2 feet tall and up to 4 feet wide

Days to Maturity: 58

One of the most delectable summer squashes, this creamy crookneck is mild, sweet, and full of flavor. The star of any setting, it's just the centerpiece you need for your organic vegetable garden.

Pick these fruits when they're small—5 to 6 inches long is ideal—and super tender. They have a creamy consistency and a gentle bite, so even children love to see the swan-necked fruits make their appearance in the kitchen.

Growing Early Summer Crookneck is simplified by the plant's bush habit, just 2 feet high and 3 to 4 feet wide. This squash won't take over the garden or run all over the place, and you can harvest the fruit easily. You can't go wrong with this certified organic seed.

Summer squash ripens during the hot summer months and, thin-skinned, is best eaten fresh. Sow seeds 1 inch deep directly into the garden after the danger of frost is past. Thin the seedlings to 24 inches apart, or plant several seeds in hills 4 feet apart and then thin to 2 plants per hill. (For even earlier harvests, start seeds indoors). Pick when the fruits are still small (5 to 6 inches long).
