Zucchini/Summer Squash Sap

EMC050 added on August 15, 2015 | Answered

PLEASE HELP: We are new to upstate NY and growing zucchini and yellow squash for the first time. When we harvest, we find that ALL of them, regardless of size and age, have a clear sap when we cut into the fruit. We've never seen this in the produce that we've bought. There is no odor, the squash looks perfect from the outside, and it doesn't seem bitter but there is a bunch of sap between the skin and the flesh and the texture of the squash seems off, likely because of the sap. We don't know what this is or what we can do about it and we've been looking all over for answers. Can anyone provide any information? Thanks.
