Squash

Overview

Squash is a member of the cucurbit family, which also includes cucumber, pumpkin, cantaloupe, and watermelon. Although there are several types of squash based on shape and color, the vast majority of Georgia's commercial production is summer squash, primarily zucchini and yellow squash. As of 2000, Georgia accounted for approximately 27% of squash produced in the United States.
