Dwarf Summer Crookneck
Cucurbita pepo

50 days — A very old, standard summer squash variety for the home garden. Its many synonyms include, 'Bush Summer Crookneck', 'Bush Summer Warted Crookneck', 'Early Bush Summer Crookneck', 'Early Golden Crookneck', 'Golden Bush', 'Golden Summer Crookneck', 'Summer Golden Crookneck', 'Long Yellow Crookneck', 'Yellow Bush Crookneck', 'Yellow Crookneck' and just plain old 'Crookneck'.[1]

The bushes are very prolific and the fruits are smooth and light yellow at the immature, fresh eating stage. They become orange and warted at maturity. They are very tasty and can be eaten raw, lightly steamed, sautéed and stir-fried.

Crookneck squash is one of the oldest categories of squash predating the arrival of the Europeans to North America. It has been listed in catalogs, under its many synonyms, since the beginnings of the seed trade in the early 1800s. Each packet contains three grams, which is approximately 36 seeds.

Easy to grow.
Easy to grow. In addition to using them young and tender, a south Kentucky dish fries these in the more mature stage about 7-8" long ( you can stick a fingernail into the flesh). Cook till tender,with onion and caramelized.

I grilled some of these up, expecting them to taste okay, but the flavor was amazing. They are the sweetest summer squash I have ever eaten. I could have eaten the whole dish full by myself.
