One of the earliest crooknecks that just keeps on producing! Compact 2'H x 3-4'W bush produces heavy yields of firm buttery yellow fruits with a narrow, swan-like, curved neck. Creamy flesh is very tender, mild and sweet. Turns deeper yellow and warty as it matures. Best when harvested at 5-6"L. Excellent fried, steamed, baked or sautèed. Perfect choice for Home Gardens and Fresh Markets.
Pollination occurs by insect, bird, wind, humans, or other natural mechanisms. Because there are no restrictions on the flow of pollen between individuals, open-pollinated plants are more genetically diverse. However, as long as pollen is not shared between different varieties within the same species, then the seed produced will remain true-to-type year after year.
