Early Yellow Summer Crookneck Squash Seeds

Very popular, especially in the southern regions. The golden fruits of this unique variety have white flesh with a firm texture and a sweet, nutty flavor. Plants are easy to grow, mature quickly, and produce lots of low calorie, versatile fruits. Use raw in salads and with dips, or steamed, fried, and baked. Freezes well. Non-genetically engineered.
