Summer Squash on Wikipedia:

Yellow crookneck squash, a variety of summer squash

Summer squash are a subset of squashes that are harvested when immature (while the rind is still tender and edible). All summer squashes are the fruits of the species Cucurbita pepo (although not all squashes of this species are considered summer squashes), but they are considered vegetables in terms of culinary use. The name ``summer squash`` refers to the short storage life of these squashes, unlike that of winter squashes.

Summer squashes include:

Cousa squash Pattypan squash (aka. ``Scallop squash``) Yellow crookneck squash Yellow summer squash Zucchini (courgette in French, and in some regional varieties English)
