A relatively new, bright yellow zucchini, cylindrical gold bar squash, sometimes spelled goldbar, offers a tender white interior. The waxy, slightly ridged exterior offers a mildly sweet flavor. Measuring an average of seven inches in length and one-and-one-fourth inches in diameter, its contrasting vivid green stem adds a striking visual touch.
Gold Bar Squash is available during the summer.
Now referred to as "soft" squash, summer varieties (different from the hard-shelled winter squash) have a soft, immature edible skin.
All squashes provide vitamin A and vitamin C, some of the B vitamins, and are a good source of fiber. Approximately 100 calories are in one cup of cooked squash.
This tender, versatile squash cooks quickly and will showcase its mild flavor and texture best when sauteed lightly or served raw. Gold bar squash may also be roasted, pan-fried, grilled, stuffed or cooked and pureed into soups. To store, place in plastic bag; refrigerate up to one week. Best used promptly for optimum quality.
A hybrid summer squash and an early straight-neck variety, this zucchini-type squash grows on a compact upright open plant and is ready for harvest between forty-five and fifty days after blooming. Members of the genus Cucurbita pepo, zucchini squashes especially favor a warm dry climate and not being all that particular, they are eager to grow in most soil types.
