If you like zucchinis and summer squash, you will highly value loke (LOW-KEY) squash. This ancient, Vedic Indian vegetable is a real winner and is easy to grow.  It is insect and disease free (unlike zucchini!).  It grows easily, making a robust, climbing vine similar to cucumber.  It produces in about 60-70 days from seed, and continues producing until frost.  It just keeps going!  The tender young squash are delicious and mild used like any other summer squash.  If you have issues with cucumber beetles or stink bugs or squash bugs, these are NOT a problem on this plant!  It's very resilient and heavy producing.  The fruits are nutritious, tender, and tasty in many dishes.  So easy!  Just plant in a sunny, well prepared, fertile garden bed and give lots of room for it to ramble, or a simple trellis or fence to climb.  Prolific production.

Growing Tips:

Plant after all danger of frost, or start indoors 2-4 weeks before planting out. Transplant carefully and give organic fertilizer. Does best if it can climb but also does well along the ground. Harvest when about 8-12 inches long.
