Squash - Summer - Zucchini

Summers Squash. Summer because they are eaten early in an immature state. 

There are many varieties of summer squash or squash that are consumed in a small and immature condition.

They are generally divided into four groups; crookneck, straightneck, scallop and zucchini.

Harvest all summer squash while they are young and immature. They are sweetest when young and begin turning bitter as they develop seeds. Pick them just as the blossom ends turn brown; crooknecks when they are 4 to 6 inches long, straightnecks when they are 5 to 6 inches long, scallops when they are 2 to 3 inches across and zucchini when they are 4 to 6 inches long. No matter how carefully you watch, an occasional squash will hide under a leaf and grow too large for normal cooking methods.
