Every seed came up, they're about 3' tall with a sturdy stem. Waiting until mid March to put out in the southern (Ga) garden. Will be licking my lips watching them flower and fruit. I like these as an addition to a traditional red tomato salad.
I had 40 mph winds my greenhouse fell over and was so surprised the seeds survived two days in the cold under soil and are still growing. The roots were in tact so i transplanted them, they are doing just fine. 10 stars

Golden Summer Crookneck Squash
Cucurbita pepo Golden Summer Crookneck (42 days)
Golden Summer Crookneck is a bush type plant produces copious yields of buttery-yellow squash with narrow curved neck. This squash is very tender and full of flavor. Golden summer turns deeper yellow as it matures. Best harvested when 8" long. Keep them picked and they will just keep coming. Extremely easy to grow. Golden Summer Crookneck is one of the earliest producing crookneck squash on the market that just keeps producing all summer long.
1937 Mc Fayden Seed Co. says... "Of dwarf bushy habit; very productive; bears early and continues through the summer; of rich, golden yellow color, thickly warted and of excellent quality."
1938 Abercrombie Seed Co. says... "Most widely used Summer Squash; deep orange colour and a grand slicer."
We started the squash in seed starter and started more than we needed because we didn't think they'd all take. We were wrong. We know have more than we could ask for. And the more then doubled after we transplanted in the raised beds.
