Thelma Sanders Sweet Potato Winter Squash Seeds (Organic)

Creamy Sweet Delight

The Thelma Sanders Sweet Potato Winter Squash, a treasured heirloom, originates from Thelma Sanders, a Missouri gardener known for discovering this unique cultivar. Within the Thelma Sanders Sweet Potato Winter Squash family, there aren't distinct subspecies, but this variety stands out for its exceptional taste and ornamental value.

The plant presents a vigorous growth habit with sprawling vines, producing flattened, deeply ribbed fruits with a distinctive cream-colored skin. Its aesthetic appeal lies in the contrast between the creamy exterior and the vibrant orange flesh within. Thelma Sanders Squash exhibits a rich, sweet flavor reminiscent of sweet potatoes, perfect for various culinary applications.

Taste-wise, the Thelma Sanders Squash offers a dense, sweet, and nutty flavor, making it a versatile ingredient for roasting, baking, pureeing into soups, or using in desserts. Its flesh is smooth and creamy, adding depth to both sweet and savory dishes.

When planting from seed, Thelma Sanders Squash thrives in fertile, well-draining soil with good moisture retention. Sow seeds directly into the ground after the last frost date, ensuring a depth of about an inch and spacing them several feet apart. These squash plants prefer full sun and consistent watering throughout the growing season.

Harvest Thelma Sanders Squash when the rind hardens, and the stem starts to dry. Proper curing in a warm, dry area enhances its flavor and extends its storage life. The combination of exceptional taste, ornamental appeal, and culinary versatility makes the Thelma Sanders Sweet Potato Winter Squash a sought-after choice among gardeners and cooks seeking a distinctive addition to their harvest.

    Planting & Care

    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.
