This squash plant will steal your heart with its easy-pick plant habit and flavorful, tender fruit! Smooth Criminal has a totally unique, indeterminate growth habit. It continually grows upright, setting more and more fruit along the central stem as it grows. This trait, combined with spineless stems makes it so easy to pick fruit—no more digging into the center of a spiny, scratchy plant and tearing up your arms! It bears very tender, pale yellow, straight-neck squash that are excellent quality and delicious grilled, sautéed and baked. For the best quality, pick fruits when they are 4-8 inches long. Plants can be trellised or supported as they grow taller, to maintain their upright stance. 55 DAYS.
