Smooth Criminal Hybrid Summer Squash
50 days. Get the shakedown on this hybrid summer squash! Smooth Criminal steals the thunder from the chore of picking squash. But no need for a gumshoe! The tender, straight-necked squash lie in wait along a central, indeterminate stem. Avoid being struck by the pesky spines that love to tear up your arms as you pick! Spineless stems and its unique, continuous, upright growth habit make capturing this mellow fellow a breeze! Harvest bountiful yields of pale yellow fruits at 4 to 8-in. for best quality. Pruning is not necessary, but removing lower leaves as they degrade is helpful. Recommended trellis or staking to maintain its vertical stance.
