Description

Yellow longneck squash closely resembles the yellow crookneck squash with a tapering cylinder shape, but unlike the crookneck does not have a curved neck. The skin may be pebbled with bumps or smooth, encasing a paler yellow or white flesh. It offers a classic summer squash flavor being mild with hints of black pepper and nuts and a slightly buttery flavor when cooked.
