Smooth Criminal Hybrid Summer Squash

Smooth Criminal Hybrid Summer Squash

Harvest without getting scratched thanks to smooth stems

One season is all it takes for Smooth Criminal to become a favorite. This yellow straightneck bears fruits on a central stem, which makes harvesting easier than ever—no more digging through leaves to find fruits. And since vines are smooth, your arms and hands won't get scratched, either, when picking. Squash is tender and pale yellow with creamy white flesh that is delicious grilled or sautéed. Adds good flavor to baked goods and casseroles, too. Best grown on a support once it reaches 36" tall. For ideal flavor, pick fruits when they are 4-8 inches long. 55 DAYS.
