40 seeds. 50 days. Cucurbita pepo. Annual.
Squash 'Early Prolific Straightneck' has lemon-yellow fruits that are 6 to 8 inches long. This is one of our favorites of the summer squashes for its thin skin. This 1938 American heirloom is good raw or cooked.
Sowing Summer Squash Seeds:
Sow seeds in hills 1 inch deep after the last frost date. Space the hills 4 to 6 feet apart. Thin to 2 plants per hill. Full sun.
