Cucurbita moschata

 Story: This is a highly productive summer squash that is usually picked young and used in the same way as courgettes. They are vining and wild! Provide the vines with plenty of support as the fruits do better when lifted off of the ground. We have grown this variety for 3 years now and it has never failed to impress! 

When to sow: sow indoors in March-May in small pots, 1.5cm deep. Once they have around 5/6 leaves, harden off outside before planting out in June. 

Requirements: squashes love soil which is rich in organic matter, mix in some compost and they'll thank you!

Harvesting: anytime from July until the first frost!
