GM Squash

Summer squash is a tender, warm-season vegetable that are grown in many parts of the world. Summer squash differs from fall and winter squash in that it is selected to be harvested before the rind hardens and the fruit matures. It grows on bush-type plants that do not spread like the plants of fall and winter squash and pumpkin. A few healthy and well-maintained plants produce abundant yields.

Squash has been modified to resist viruses particularly watermelon mosaic virus (WMV) and zucchini yellow mosaic virus (ZYMV).
