Comments: A market leader for years. Early and prolific as long as it is kept picked. Best known for high yields. Widely adaptable. Multipik has the precocious gene for early color, even on the stem. This gene also masks the symptoms of cucumber mosaic virus and watermelon II virus that can turn yellow squash green. Smooth bright yellow fruit are what most markets demand, either picked early as a mini-vegetable or later as market size. Very high yielding straightneck hybrid squash of excellent quality. Precocious yellow straightneck with an elongated medium bulb. Vigorous plant with bush habit.
