Incredibly prolific all summer long. Sunny yellow (sometimes orange-y) summer squash has a tender, slightly bumpy gourdlike skin and a buttery, nutty flavor. Not as watery when cooked as other yellow squash, so it’s great for casseroles. Bushy plants are very easy to grow and will provide more squash than you know what to do with. Great for beginning gardeners. Will tolerate a light frost. Photo courtesy of Baker Creek Heirloom Seed.
