Sweet Dumpling Squash Seeds (Winter Type) 2280. Open Pollinated.

Approx. 20 seeds/pkt (10-12 seeds/gram)

A delightful dumpling shaped, delicate squash. Very sweet and tasty light golden flesh in compact fruits that average 10 cm (4″) size and 250 g (1/2 lb) weight. Just the right size for individual servings. Very productive vine; fruit stores quite well. Fruit benefits from straw mulch between it and the soil.

How to Grow

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.
