yellow squash is green and yellow

kmbruno(z9b fl)June 23, 2012

My summer squash plants are large and healthy looking and the fruit is firm and large but the color is both green and yellow. I have researched a little and found that it could be a virus of some sort. Will they still edible and what can I do to the soil to prevent this from happening again,I am growing them in a earthbox and have'nt found much information on this problem, any info you can give will be most appreciated.

It has a virus and the fruit will most likely be bitter. I would check with you local extension agent for help with the problem. As for me I never found out how but pulled up my plants.

Could it be the variety of Zepher squash that is 2/3 yellow 1/3 green?
