Soil & Water: Provide squash plants with deep mounds of organic matter, rich soil, and heavy, even water.

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 insects.

Reviews

My favorite summer squash

I love growing this plant. The plant is very robust and is a heavy producer. Keep up on picking this one, it matures pretty quick and if you miss on, then it will be huge. Very nice nutty taste, yum.

Great Plant!

I was very impressed with this squash plant. I planted about 8 different plants and all grew very well. It took awhile to get established for the season, but when it did, I had squash everywhere. It grew very easy, good size, and very tender. I will grow these again.
