Winter Squash - Delicata - Cucurbita pepo

Annual Vining. Delicata's 7"-9" oblong fruit has ivory-colored skin striped with green. Its flesh has a rich, sweet-potato-like flavor which is ideal for baking or stuffing. Its short vines are prolific.

Did You Know? Most people cannot tell whether pumpkin or squash is used in a pie. Many cooks actually prefer winter squash to pumpkin because it makes a non-fibrous pie.

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 plastic mulches 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: After all chance of frost has passed, plant 4-5 seeds in hills 2"-4" apart. When the young plants are established, thin each hill to two to three plants each.

Harvesting & Storage: Harvest when the fruits have turned a deep solid color and the rind is hard. Harvest the main part of the crop before heavy frosts hit your area. Cut squash from the vines carefully leaving two inches of stem attached. Unlike many winter squash, Delicata can be used right after harvest. No curing necessary.
