The Crookneck squash are some of the oldest squash still being grown. Seeds were brought over from Europe and cultivated in the Americas as early as the 1500’s. A crooked neck comes from the twisted and bent neck of the gourd, round at the bottom providing lots of good meat without a whole lot of seeds. Maturing does result in more seeds and a stringier texture, but that only occurs once it has gone WAY too long. Pick them small, and they are the best thing for a summer stir-fry or vegetable salad.

    The description isn’t joking when it says “High Yields.” I got at least 5 squash from each plant and the squash are also good for decoration. I will definitely plant this again!

    I have had terrific success with this variety. Every seed thus far has germinated into a large, yielding plant!
    I am in South California and give them full sun & plenty of water. I cover them with 70% shade when temps are in the 90-100+ Fahrenheit range.

    This Crookneck Squash was a fun variety to grow. It is not an abundant producer and the plant itself is small and a bit fragile compared to other squash plants I’ve grown in the past.
