Uniquely formed fruit weighing in at 1.5-2.0 kg (3.3-4.4 lbs) with fiberless sweet orange flesh. Make sure to grow these in hot weather locations with rich, well drained organic soil for fruit to mature to full potential.
10-12 seeds/gram Squash are a hot weather crop. They need full sun and deep, rich, well drained, organic soil with a pH of 5.5 to 6.5. Before planting, work in lots of compost. Directly plant seed outdoors from late May to mid June 2.5 cm (1") deep in hills 2.4 m (8') apart with 4-6 seeds per hill. After germination, thin to 3 plants per hill. Seed can be started indoors 3 weeks before the plant out date. Squash do not transplant well--use paper or fibre pots that can be set directly in the soil. Protect mature squash from frost and cold temperatures.
