Cucurbita pepo

95 days. Wonderful delicata squash variety developed by Carol Deppe and Nate France. Larger than other varieties at 2-3 lbs. Flavor is sweet, between maple syrup and dates, with that delicata nuttiness. Good keepers you will be enjoying through the new year.

How to grow it:  

Direct sow 4 seeds 1-2" deep in small mounds 18-24"apart. Thin to 2 plants per mound. Squash are heavy feeders, provide fertility throughout the season. Harvest mature fruits before the forecasted last frost. Cure them in a sunny, frost-free location for 2 weeks, then store them at room temp and enjoy at your leisure for 3-4 months!
