I thought I was growing the kind of yellow squash that is basically just like zucchini. Instead, what I'm getting are these yellow gourd-like vegetables with bumpy, thick skin and big seeds inside. And of course I did not save the seed package.
Are you maybe thinking of a golden hubbard squash?<br>
Sort of football shaped things, if a football could grow to be up tp 20" in diameter?<br>
If so, all you do is cut it in half, scoop out the seeds and bake it with some butter. I like to add lemon juice and garlic as well. Scoop out the insides and eat. Yum. Oh, and if you do get a 20" wide, 25 lbs squash, just scoop it out and use it as a pumpkin.
It could be yellow crookneck squash, which is technically a summer squash. I think I grew them once thinking they would be more like yellow zucchini. I sliced them and sauteed them like zucchini but it might be best to peel them since the skin gets thick and tough. And the large seeds are bothersome too.
I sounds like I am growing a yellow crookneck squash. I have tried sauteeing them, but the seeds are not very tasty. However, if I skin it and scoop out the seeds, there's not much squash left! I'm going to try letting it grow bigger, maybe that will help.<br><br>
I wish it was a yellow hubbard squash. That sounds much tastier than what I've got going here...
It sounds like yellow crookneck squash, and if so, you have to pick it small, probably smaller than you can let zukes get.<br><br>
If the seeds are big and the skin is tough, it's pretty much inedible. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">
