Heirloom. This early, prolific straightneck summer squash produces creamy yellow, tender fruit of excellent quality early in the season. Plants continue bearing if kept picked and cared for. It has a tapered, straight neck, not curved like Crookneck, making it perfect to slice into lengths for grilling. Tender straightneck squash is delicious sliced thin for fresh dips or cooked in any number of dishes. Plant in hills spaced three feet apart..
