Squash (Summer)



Market Look-For’s

  • Tight, unmarked skin with a bit of fuzz still hanging on
  • Even width along the body


  • Store in a cool dark place. Refrigerators make zucchini dull and pocked.


  • The larger the squash the larger the seeds and the more water in the flesh.
  • Large squash are good for zucchini bread etc.
  • Small squash are best for shaving raw.
  • Summer squash is generally dull in flavor—perk up with a lot of herbs, acid, salt and fat.
