Summer squash are squashes that are harvested when immature, while the rind is still tender and edible.
Nearly all summer squashes are varieties of Cucurbita pepo, though not all Cucurbita pepo are considered summer squashes.
Most summer squash have a bushy growth habit, unlike the rambling vines of many winter squashes.

Persian Lime also known as seedless lime, Bearss lime, and Tahiti lime, is a citrus fruit species of hybrid origin, known only in cultivation.
The Persian lime is most likely from a cross between key lime (Citrus aurantiifolia) and lemon (Citrus × limon).
Although there are other citrus species that are referred to as limes, C. × latifolia is the most widely cultivated lime species for commercial use, and accounts for the largest share of the fruits sold as limes.
GreenPoint’s Persian Limes take 480 acres out of cultivation and are commercialized from September to August.
Butternut squash, also known in Australia and New Zealand as butternut pumpkin or gramma, and “Batana” in Sri Lanka is a type of winter squash. It has a sweet, nutty taste similar to that of a pumpkin. It has yellow skin and orange fleshy pulp. When ripe, it turns increasingly deep orange, and becomes sweeter and richer. It grows on a vine. The most popular variety, the Waltham Butternut, originated in Waltham, Massachusetts.
