THE ABSOLUTE BEST!!!
Reviewed By: Pat McClellan (Georgetown, SC)
These truly are squash that will thrive under stressful conditions. My garden is very sandy, very hot with about 10 hrs. of sun a day, and has had very little rain. We have had almost no problem with squash bugs and have had absolutely no disease with these plants. Our plants are still beautiful on July 20th. Usually by this time, our plants are finished because of the coastal SC heat and drought. These are also the most delicious squash we have ever eaten. All of those with whom we have shared squash have raved about their tender skin and buttery flavor. Thank you Gurney's!!!!

Great Patio Plant
Reviewed By: Melodie (Gainesville, Georgia)
This plant has done very well, even with stormy weather knocking it over. All the squash I have gotten from it have been very tasty and it just keeps producing. Strongly recommend for patio gardening!

Another great crop
Reviewed By: Heidi Malone (Athens, AL)
We had another great crop of this squash in 2009. We have been enjoying the ones we froze all winter. We can't wait to plant more. It's beautiful, hardy, and very disease resistant in my area! LOVE IT!

Yummiest Squash
Reviewed By: Melodie Casey (Johnson, KS)
"My 10 year old son says, ""This is the yummiest squash we've ever grown."" The plants just keep growing, sometimes extending over ten feet in each direction, and produce enough to feed all our family and friends."

Fantastic Squash
Reviewed By: Cole (B, PA)
Fantastic squash! Great tasting. I love the compact plants which gives more room in my garden for other veggies. One plants gave more squash than i know what to do with! I will be buying more seeds for next year!

Favorite crookneck
Reviewed By: Jocelyn (Southwick, MA)
This is my favorite yellow summer squash: easy to grow, smooth thin skin, slow to get starchy, delectible mild flavor, prolific. I tried another variety last year but I came back to Gurney's Gentry Hybrid.

Great Choice
Reviewed By: Debra (Houston, Texas)
We tried these this summer (2007). In the mornings we were given a beautiful view - a row full of open, bright yellow flowers. So far we have close to 200 squash. We've frozen some, shared some - and of course eaten many. Our toddlers even ask for more. Very pretty as well as tastey.
