Highly ornamental, contrastingly marked fruits appear in great numbers and store well for later use. The fruits have an excellent flavour and grow to 300-600g, an ideal size for culinary use. Hugely versatile, the flesh can be used for soups, pies, roast.
Stores well for 3 months. Mature in 90-100 days. There is a great variety in shapes, colors and types of squash, making them fun to grow. Growing pumpkins can be a great project for kids. Seedlings should be gradually hardened off. Plants prefer rich, compost enriched soil. They will cross pollinate within their species. After harvest they should be ripened for 30 days in a cool location.
Important Info : The vines need plenty of room to sprawl, although some can be supported on a trellis. Summer squash or pumpkins should be sown indoors in flats in short season areas, 3-4 weeks before the night soil temperatures have warmed up.
