So is yellow crookneck squash an avoid or a beneficial for type o hunter?


As far as I can tell it is neither which makes it a neutral. I looked in the Genotype book.

I consider Squash to be things like butternut, acorn, delicata, etc.

And yellow summer squash to be same category as zucchini.


Pumpkin is listed separate.  I'd always thought of it as a winter squash.  Pumpkin diamond, Squash neutral on my swami. So I'm somewhat confused,  I've gotten seeds which listed yellow squash as zucchini. Since zucchini, and pumpkin are diamond and "squash" is neutral not a problem for me. Can see where it would be for others.

I have always seen zucchini and "squash" listed seperatly and assumed they were different. I also assumed sence some of the winter squash ( butternut, acorn, ect) are listed seperatly that the "squash" in general must be summer squash. although I have seen a hybrid of summer squash and zucchini they are totaly separate fruits. as different from each other as horses and donkeys. composition and seed arangement are very different not to mention plant growth itself.
I don't get them from the store, I found out some of them are gmo. if I grow them or my friends grow them I just eat them in moderation. I did find out that even though butternut is listed as binni it dose not like me so I just eat carefully and see what my body says if I am not sure were to rait an unlisted or even a neutral food.


nothing to do? who has that!?

My interpretation is that winter squashes (butternut, acorn, spaghetti) are "squash" while the thin-skinned summer squashes are "zuchinni". I've seen yellow squashes that are essentially yellow zucchini, so I figure they're the same thing.

Zucchini might be GMO, so I only buy organic or from the farmer's market or from Trader Joe's. That's not a risk with winter squashes.

Yellow crookneck squash has thicker skin than zucchinis, but it's a summer squash, not a winter squash, so I'm really not sure how that would be rated.

What gets confusing is the difference between "squash" and "pumpkin." Particularly since there are varieties of squash that look like pumpkins.

Is there a reason squash is listed as an avoid? When I run Swami squash is always avoid, but zucchini moves between neutral and beneficial depending on the settings.  Doesn't differentiate among different squash types however.

I wish we could see a breakdown as to the why nots for the avoids, because I'm in the same boat. I have eating for quite a long time, pretty much all kinds of squash, usually once a week. Now I just eat zucchini about once a month.
Zuchini is a black dot/avoid for me, squash is an avoid period for me. Pumpkin is a diamond food for me. I really don't quite know what I answered on my swami that puts this out of the neutral food category.

In the type base Dr. D has listed Squash/Summer/Winter/All Varieties.  

In the description on the page he states:  "The most widely available varieties of summer squash are CROOKNECK, PATTYPAN and ZUCCHINI."
Also:  "Winter squash varieties include ACORN, BUTTERCUP, BUTTERNUT, HUBBARD, SPAGHETTI and TURBAN."

I thought when I first saw a separate listing for zucchini that it was special somehow.  After having seen this, I wonder if zucchini is listed separately because it would be easier for the novice to find it in the list.

I hope that this does not make this whole issue more confusing.

My husband and I are both Hunters and we both LOVE Squash..the winter hard Squash's.  They are a neutral for us but I am having a hard time not eating them every day!  I use the sweeter ones as a snack.   I know I need to concentrate on Diamonds and Beneficials but with Squash... I am a bit weak!    Especially the Delicata squash!  they are fabulous!  Much sweeter than even Butternut but still a delicate flavor.
