Description:

AAS Winner 2004. A classic buttercup squash with smooth, deep green skin; rich, sweet orange flesh and great taste! Fruits average 2 kg (5 lbs) on vigorous but shorter 2.5 m (8') vines. More uniform taste and better production than other Buttercup varieties. Excellent holding quality in storage! Smaller vines make 'Bon Bon' an excellent choice for small or crowded gardens. And when it comes to more gardening in less space, this squash is an excellent candidate for growing up a trellis.

How To Grow 10-12 seeds/gram Squash are a hot weather crop. They need full sun and deep, rich, well drained, organic soil with a pH of 5.5 to 6.5. Before planting, work in lots of compost. Directly plant seed outdoors from late May to mid June 2.5 cm (1") deep in hills 2.4 m (8') apart with 4-6 seeds per hill. After germination, thin to 3 plants per hill. Seed can be started indoors 3 weeks before the plant out date. Squash do not transplant well--use paper or fibre pots that can be set directly in the soil.
