General Squash - Summer Info

To increase shelf life, start with squash that is most flavorful; select small to medium-size squashes that are firm with smooth, glossy unblemished skins.

Short Term Squash - Summer Storage

Summer squash dehydrates rapidly, so place in a perforated plastic bag or just loose in the more humid crisper section of the refrigerator immediately after harvest or purchase. The unwashed squash should maintain a good condition and quality for 5 to 7 days.

Cooked summer squash will last 2 to 3 days when refrigerated in a covered container.

Squash - Summer Long Term Storage

Raw summer squash freezes poorly; it turns mushy due to its high water content.

Cooked summer squash can be pureed and frozen.

Squash - Summer Side Notes

Summer squash varieties include: yellow crookneck and straight neck, zucchini, patty pan (a small, pale green scalloped squash), and Scallopini (smaller dark green version of patty pan).
