    This is my favorite summer squash. It has the mild, buttery flavor of a yellow squash with the soft skin and slow-maturing seeds of a zucchini. A beautiful deep gold color, it makes a lovely presentation when mixed with one of the dark green zucchinis to serve. However, it seems more susceptible to vine borers than other zucchinis, so the harvest season is short for me.
