How to harvest yellow squash

Anonymous added on June 3, 2015 | Answered

Do I snap or pinch the squash off? Or should I cut? If I cut, how much of stem do I cut off? Also, if I cut, will a new one grow? Thank you.

Once ripe, the squash should be easily pulled from the vine. However, many people prefer to cut them from the vine, leaving about an inch or two of stem.
