Have you ever heard of golden zucchini? It is actually really popular, with an excellent flavor and really easy to grow. A bush variety, plant seeds in mounds and keep harvesting, feeding, and watering for longer harvests. 55 days from seed to harvest. Squash is a warm season crop. Direct seed outdoors after all danger of frost is over. Look at the number of days needed for harvest; many summer squash varieties are quick to mature. I usually sow a second round of summer squash in July for a fall crop.
