A squash that looks like a lemon

Bright yellow fruits look like lemons! Very prolific. Delicious when eaten young while the skin is tender and the seeds are small. Tasty and attractive for farmers markets as well as the home garden. Some fruit shape variability. Good pest resistance: plants are more likely to outlast the bugs and sprawl a bit.
