Summer Squash - - Cucurbita pepo

Annual Heirloom. Uniform lemon-yellow lightly warted club-shaped fruits are best harvested at 4"-7" long. Firm fine-grained thick flesh, excellent quality, popular in Northeast and Northern areas. All American Selection winner in 1938.

Soil & Water: Provide squash plants with deep mounds of organic matter, rich soil, and heavy, even water. All squash are extremely frost sensitive, so use mulch to heat soils in early spring and row covers to protect from frost at both ends of the growing cycle, especially in short growing seasons.

Planting & Growing: Start seeds indoors 3-4 weeks before the last frost, or sow seed directly once soils are at least 70F. Use row covers to provide a physical barrier to many insects.

Harvesting & Storage: Pick squash when they are 4"-7" long to keep production high, and for best flavor.
