The word “squash” is derived from the Native American word “askutasquash,” meaning “thing eaten green/uncooked.”

In the US, they differentiate squash into two types: summer and winter squash. This refers not to when you can plant them but how you use them. Summer squashes are eaten in summer as they cannot be stored (e.g. marrow and patty pan). Winter squashes (e.g. butternut) are typically stored and then eaten through winter when other vegetables are not available. We have included them all in one section.

Squash is a warm-season crop that is treated and grown much like pumpkin. Squashes have either a bush or vining growth habit.

The smaller-fruited vining types can be trained up a fence/lattice if space is at a premium. Bush types are suited for small gardens and growing in large pots.
