When they are about 6 or 7 inches long, like the size you generally see in the store. They can and will grow bigger, but they get tougher inside and aren't really that good to eat when they are over-sized. Watch them closely, squash grow quickly.

Smaller is better for summer squash - zucchini, yellow squash, rolly-poly, patty-pan, etc.) You will want to check at least daily. They can "escape" and become footballs or baseball bat size so easily! The itty-bitty ones don't even need to be cooked - just wash them off, wipe off any prickles, and slice them onto salads!
