C. pepo. An old-time HEIRLOOM variety. Yellow Crookneck Organic zucchini seeds produce creamy yellow 13-15cm (5-6″) fruits. As the fruits mature, they turn a darker yellow, almost orange, and develop their distinctive curved neck, warty skin, and really excellent flavour. The flesh is creamy white, sweet, and mild tasting. Yellow Crookneck is an open bush plant that is most productive once the night time temperatures have warmed up in summer. Once August arrives, the plants start producing fruits like a factory. This variety was already in cultivation when Columbus arrived in the Americas, so it is not just an heirloom, but quite ancient.
Matures in 75 days. (Open-pollinated seeds)
