Which produces more...zucchini or yellow squash?
Zucchini and yellow squash produce the same number of fruit per plant. The difference is the final size of fruit.

This is not important to commercial producers since market size for either does not exceed 8 inches and most supermarkets want fruit less than 6 inches long.
