A heavy-bearing variety, the gold color doesn't fade to green later in the season like a lot of yellow zukes.

As described by D. Palmer: "Butter Stix Yellow Zucchini Summer Squash seed is a hybrid, yellow zucchini squash. Unbelievably uniform, this cream colored zucchini does not show the scaring that darker varieties exhibit. Blocky, long fruit cut to a nice ivory-white flesh—a striking package when boxed. Butter Stix yellow zucchini summer squash will be an excellent addition to any squash growers program."
