This beauty stands out in the garden with light yellow on orange sutures. Exceptional eating quality – fine grained light yellow flesh has a very sweet taste. Resistant to powdery mildew. Fruit averages 750 g (1.5 lb) and 10 cm x 12 cm (4” x 5”) in size. This winter squash doesn’t get the attention it should – which is a shame indeed! Packet contains 15 seed.
How to Grow
10-12 seed/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. Protect mature squash from frost and cold temperatures.
