PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
 

Organic summer squash seed certified by Baystate Organic Certifiers.

Fruits are attractive, lemon yellow, tapering towards the stem end. 12”-14” long but tender and succulent at 5”-6” long. Vigorous, leafy, bushy plants producing heavily. 42 days.

This summer vegetable is very popular, easy to grow, and fast maturing, producing a generous crop of delicious and delicately flavored fruits. Plants will continue to produce tender, vitamin rich fruit until frost if all fruits are harvested before they mature. The fruit is delicious when baked, streamed, fried, or boiled, and when used in a variety of recipes. Squash freezes well.

175-300 seeds/oz. 10 days, 72F. Sow directly into peat pots or packs and flats. Germinate, then grow on at 70F. Will have a saleable plant in about 3-5 weeks.

When and Where to Plant: Select a sunny location and plant in late spring after soil warms. Soil should be cultivated, enriched with vegetable food and organic matter, firmed over the seed, and kept moist.
Care: Keep soil moist and feed monthly. Don't worry when first blossoms fail to set fruit.
