Be sure to check out our Summer Squash Growing Guide to learn more tips & tricks on successfully growing summer squash.

Goldprize Squash is one of the most-productive varieties of straightneck, yellow squash you'll find. This hybrid produces consistently-sized 6-7" fruits that are glossy and smooth with an attractive yellow exterior. Fruits have few spines which leads to less fruit damage during harvesting. Goldprize Squash has an excellent disease package and is resistant to several common mosaic viruses. The disease resistance allows for increased plant longevity and increased harvesting windows into the heat of summer. In addition to superb production, Goldprize has excellent flavor, texture and storage potential.

Squash may be direct seeded or transplanted, although we highly recommend direct seeding. To ensure a good stand, we recommend planting squash Seeds every 12" along the intended row. Once plants emerge, thin plants to one every 2 feet. Squash can be susceptible to plant diseases like downy mildew and powdery mildew if leaves receive excess moisture. As a result, we recommend using drip irrigation on squash to reduce plant moisture and feed plants more effectively. During periods of heavy rainfall, using a fungicide like Liquid Copper can help to alleviate disease pressure as well.

Squash are a crop that will require multiple harvests throughout the growing season. Regardless of variety, squash will have better flavor and texture when harvested on the small end of the spectrum. We recommend harvesting every 2-3 days to ensure no fruits become too large and unpalatable. When squash plants cease production, remove the plants from the garden to prevent any fungal spores from overwintering and becoming a problem in future years. Proper crop rotation is extremely important with all squash varieties to reduce disease and pest pressure.

Squash Experiment

I have never tried the Gold Prize Squash before. It seems to be a Squash that will meet my liking. I was looking for a squash that didn't have a fat body full of seeds and mush. This squash resembles a zucini and I hope it has the beautiful squash taste. I'm exited to find out the results.
