Q.Is bumpy yellow squash normal?

Zone 6A | jtorres48@comcast.net added on July 19, 2012 | Answered

I’m growing yellow squash for the first time and some of them look more like gourds because they are bumpy all over and not smooth like I’ve seen in the store. Can these bumpy squash be eaten?

There are varieties of yellow squash that are naturally bumpy and taste just fine for people. So, yes, they can be eaten.
