zucchini, yellow straightneck or crookneck squash, patty pan squash are all considered summer squashes. They are thin skinned, have light colored flesh, have a high water content, and cannot be stored like winter squashes.

Summer squashes come in various colors and shapes, but they all have thinner skin than winter squashes.
