Description

Winter Squash - Table Queen Acorn - Cucurbita pepo

Tender Annual Heirloom. Ribbed fruit is 6" by 4", 1-2 lb with a small seed cavity and hard, green rind. Sweet flesh is light-yellow to deep-orange. The plant grows as a bush about 3' across and 10-12" high; very vigorous and prolific. Withstands poor soil conditions.

Did You Know? Winter squash is an excellent source of beta-carotene and a good source of potassium, niacin, and iron.

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.

Harvesting & Storage: Harvest when stems begin to shrivel or you can no longer pierce the skin with a thumbnail, but before the first hard frost. Cut squash from the vine leaving 2"-3" of stem attached. Allow to cure in the sun for 10 days to finish hardening the skins. Store in cool, dry conditions. To minimize the spread of rots, store in a single layer and do not allow squashes to touch.
