I tried this last year and I didn't have a lot of success with it. However, it was really DRY and hot so this may have had an impact on the production. I did produce squash and the taste was good. I am going to plant again this year with the hope of having more rain and better production.

This is my favorite of the yellow crooknecks. It is very prolific and still has flavor almost as good as the ancient Giant Warted Crookneck. The best combination of yield and flavor that I have found to date.
