This summer squash is nicknamed avocado squash because of its shape. It has glossy deep green skin, light yellow flesh, and a wonderful, sweet flavor. With moderate plant vigor, it is easy to grow and has good fruit set due to short internode scing and a narrow stem. Ripe fruits measure about 4" in diameter.
Squash prefers warm temperatures. Prepare fertile, well-drained soil. Sow seeds in spring/summer after last frost in a warm, sunny location. Hill planting: Form soil into a 1-ft. diameter mound 3-4" tall. Space mounds 3-4' apart. On each mound plant 1-2 seeds. Row planting: See spacing info in chart. Keep soil moist. Fertilize as needed. Train to climb a vertical support for better air circulation and ease of harvest or leave to sprawl on the ground.
