Squash, Delicata

Cucurbita pepo


Full Sun

86 Days to Harvest

Plant 24”-36” apart


Very sweet flavor, and excellent for stuffing right off the vine, needing no curing. Fruits are 7”-9” long, 3” wide, and weigh in at 1 to 1.5 pounds. Each plant averages 5-7 fruits. Harvest by cutting the stem 1” from the fruit as the stem is drying and skin hardening. Cure fruit by exposing to the sun for 5-7 days and covering in the event of frost. Will keep for up to 4 months in storage at 50 degrees.
