Max's Gold Hybrid Summer Squash

A taste-test winner in our summer squash trials, Max 's Gold Hybrid Summer Squash yields plenty of vibrant, deep golden yellow, shiny fruits with a rich, savory flavor and a small seed cavity. Plants generally grow 36 in. tall and wide with an open habit and low spines. Max 's Gold plants remained healthier later in the growing season than other summer squash varieties. Unlike winter squash, summer squash is harvested when the fruits are immature and have thin skins. We like to harvest them at 6-8 inches. Summer squash seeds can be sown when the weather is warm and all danger of frost has passed. Plant again in midsummer for a fall crop. 55 DAYS.
