Summer Squash need warm weather to grow. The plants produce squash in 50 to 65 days, so there is no point of planting them indoors. It is best to plant seeds directly in the garden. Plant your seeds after the soil has warmed up. Thin so there are 4 plants per hill. Summer Squash produces abundantly, so there is no need to plant successive plantings. Eight plants will provide more than enough for a large family. You can trellis squash to save space. Plants grow 2 ft tall and vines spread up to 10 ft.

Requires fertile slightly acid soil in a well drained location in the garden. Apply much and grass clippings, or straw around base of plant. Add well composted manure.

Keep soil consistently moist, but not waterlogged. Water well during dry and hot spells.

Harvest Tips:

Protect ripening summer squash from damp ground by placing them on boards. Cut summer squash carefully from plants to prevent damaging the vines.

These zuccinis have a very high yield and grow to be as big as 6" in diameter. One good sized veggie will make two loaves of bread easily!! You won't be disappointed.

These 8-Balls are great because they're the prefect size. Very Tastey and deserve the AAS award. I will be growing these from now on in comparison to the BIG Zucchinis of the past. Slice'm, dip them in a spicen-up tempura batter and deep fry in PEANUT OIL only. AWESOME!
