Squash are a member of the Cucurbit plant family. They are grown in all horticultural production areas including Victoria, New South Wales, Queensland, South Australia, Western Australia, the Northern Territory and Tasmania. Squash is suited to a wide variety of soil types. It is planted in light textured soils such as in Northern Territory soils, which increases the chances of an earlier crop. Generally plants are of bush and trailing types but the bush type is more common and popular. The stems are hard ribbed and furrowed, frequently five sided and spiny. The leaves are deeply serrated with 3-7 lobes. The fruit has much softer skin and matures earlier than pumpkins but don’t keep as well. There are two types, the green button squash and yellow button squash with a cultivar called yellow ruffles.
