Squash Summer squash is

Squash Summer squash is an integral part of many traditional southern cuisines; it is used in many famous dishes. The Middle East prefers to grow them small and stuff them with meat and vegetables before cooking in the oven. In Europe we tend to cook them in slices in oven dishes or fry them with olive oil and garlic as part of a mixed salad. Enza Zaden works in many types of squash, from the short, white Middle Eastern types used for stuffing, to the more familiar long, dark green cylindrical types we see on the supermarket shelves in Northern Europe. Resistance breeding is an essential part of the future success of squash breeding. Without resistance to the most important diseases and viruses it is impossible for the growers to have a good crop. We choose a regional approach to breeding, marketing and sales. Extended screening in all key areas and local, committed teams make sure we deliver what the market asks for. We adapt resistances to each region. Turkey is our main breeding location for summer squash, with many satellite stations in key locations to carry out local adaptation trials.
