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.

Excited to grow

I can't wait to try this squash since it is supposed to have a sweet potato flavor. This is a winter squash so I have to wait a little though.

Not coming up

These seeds are not doing well. All the other seeds I bought are growing like crazy. These are either not sprouting at all or very weakly. Bummed.

Good and Hardy!

I ordered some of GrowOrganic's Delicata Squash seeds this winter but I accidentally planted the seeds almost a month too early/ Amazingly, the Delicata seeds lived through an incredibly cold spring. Those are some hardy little plants! They are now thriving and i'm anticipating some delicious Delicatas!Thanks GrowOrganic!

Delicata Squash is the best kept secret of all the squash family!

We were introduced to Delicata Squash two years ago and we were blown away by the taste! We think Delicata Squash is the best kept secret of all the squash family! And we love how easy it is to grow these plants! I didn't know at the time to separate them from ALL other squash plants, so when I saved the seeds, the next year I got some really strange watermelon-sized striped squash with acorn squash insides! ha.
So I bought some more Delicata Squash seeds from GrowOrganic and THIS time I'll plant them by themselves! Love your seeds and LOVE all Tricia's videos! I keep a file of her videos so I can keep referring back to them!

Not Sure.

I planted 4 of these plants. They all grew and had very nice plants, although only 2 produced fruit so i am on the fence about it. Not sure if it was just a bad growing season or what. The fruit was pretty small so didn't really get too much out of them, although the plants seemed to grow well themselves, maybe just not a good year. I don't think I would recommend these, although would love for someone else to try to see if they have success as it seems it has potential.
