The best flavoured winter Squash avaialable. Thick, orange flesh cooks dry, tastes like sweet potatoes! Deep green skin is flecked with gray. Squash weigh in at 2 kg (4.5 lbs). Very good baker–but stores well too!
Squash plants are frost tender and must be planted when danger of frost is past. For earlier fruit, plant in 8 cm (3 in) jiffy pots or strips 3 to 4 weeks prior to intended date of transplanting to the garden. Plant the seed 4 cm (1 1/2 in) deep and keep the soil warm, 22 C (72 F). Space plants in the garden 1 m (3 ft) apart. Fertilize with 10-52-17 and liquid seaweed for strong healthy plants.
