A new bright yellow semi-crookneck from Harris Moran. Has the precocious yellow gene which inhibits green from virus infections. It is extremely early and very high yielding. The female flowers preceded the male flowers, so interplanting with an early pollinizer could be helpful. Yield good and tastes good but its main claim to fame is that it does green when infected with mosaic.
