Madison's Cross – A Yellow Straightneck Squash – 35 Days to Maturity

Madison's Cross - A Yellow Straightneck Squash - 35 Days to Maturity

This is more information about my breeding practices. I’ve decided to name my wonderful squash “Madison’s Cross” after my daughter Madison. She loves squash and often did taste tests for me through the years breeding trials. This was her favorite. It is a superior quality straightneck type yellow squash that has fruit ready to harvest after 35 days. I appreciate those who paid an interest in naming it! I really do.

Hydroponic Gardening & More with Brent


What do you think?


  1. Looks like you are getting to where you were trying to go. 35 days to maturity is pretty impressive. Selective breeding even works with animals. And powdery mildew resistance is icing on the cake. Now if you can just train it to swat squash vine borers 🙂

  2. After all your accomplishments, including greenhouse, FAWN system, other hydroponic systems, heated grow space, and more, it is nice to see that topped by the shared experience of developing this squash variety with your daughter.I really enjoy yellow summer squash and am glad to see the success you're experiencing stabilizing this cross.Great job!

  3. Hey Brent my name is Casey I commented earlier on the fill of the fawn system. I will be running the same system very shortly. And I apologize, but i just wanna make sure, that you fill from the top only with drop, met it run down into the rain gutter and back into you sump tank. Thanks again, you have some great videos, keep it up. I'm really new at this commenting thing, not quite sure how it works yet, but I'm getting there. Take care

  4. What a great tribute to your daughter! 👍for that 🙂
    I came in late to your game so I'm holding off asking anything till I catch up a bit more as you have very fascinating things going on. congratulations!👍
