Gold Bar squash is a long, slim summer squash aptly named for its bright, golden yellow skin. Its exterior is shiny and smooth, oftentimes with subtle pale yellow striping running the length of the squash. The ends of the squash are capped with bright green at both its blossom end and stem. Its interior flesh is creamy white with a firm yet succulent texture and moist seed cavity. Its thin skin is tender and need not be removed prior to consumption particularly since most of the squash's nutrients are located in it. Its flavor is nutty, grassy and subtly sweet both when raw and when cooked.
Gold Bar squash is available year-round with a peak season in the summer months.
Gold Bar squash is botanically a part of Cucurbita pepo and a member of the Cucurbitaceae family. This straight neck, yellow summer squash is also sometimes referred to as Goldbar squash or simply as a yellow zucchini. These yellow zucchini types are relatively new to the commercial marketplace and when originally released in 1973 the variety was given a PVP or Plant Variety Protection. This PVP acted as a protective patent for some time but has since expired, allowing new varieties of yellow zucchini such as the Gold Bar to be developed.
