Planting & Care

Soil and 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 and Growing: Best to direct sow 2-4 weeks after the last frost and when the soil has warmed to at least 60°F. Can sow 3 seeds per mound and space mounds 6-8' apart. Thin to 1-2 plants per mound. If in a short season area, sow indoors in pulp pots, 2-4 weeks before the last frost.

Harvesting and Storage: Harvest before the first frost and when the rind is hard enough that you can't dent it with a fingernail. Cut the stems, leaving a 2" handle. Handle carefully, bruised fruit will spoil quickly.
