The Squash Summer Early Prolific Straightneck, 'Cucurbita pepo', was an All America Selection in 1938. The Straightneck is still very popular because of it's thick, tasty flesh. This old open pollinated squash is still a favorite and for good reason. The Early Prolific Straight is best when harvested at 4 to 7 inches. The flesh is fine-grained, thick, firm, and very tasty. They also can be harvested very small for a "baby" vegetable. Plant in the spring, 2 to 4 weeks after the last average frost date. Squash prefers well drained, rich soil with lots of organic matter. Harvest as soon as squash reaches at least 1 inch in length and up to 4 to 7 inches in length. Squash are most tender and flavorful when young.
