  • Comments: Smooth Criminal features an indeterminate growth habit, meaning it continues to grow taller and put on new fruit at the top of the plant. Plant is open and very easy to pick from as compared to a traditional 'bush' type plant, where you have to dig into the plant to harvest the fruit (getting your arms scratched up in the process). The stems are also completely smooth and spineless, which also equals no irritation to your arms during picking. Fruit quality is excellent, very tender, pale yellow squash is excellent for all uses.
