Product Description

It's a dependable plant, producing high yields of fruit even in stressful conditions like the high heat of summer. Full of antioxidants that promote optimal weight and heart health, summer squash also contains alpha- and beta-carotene, which promotes respiratory health and works as an anti-inflammatory agent.
