Organic winter squash seed certified by Baystate Organic Certifiers.

Open PollinatedWhat do these symbols mean?

(3 lbs.) Turban-shaped squash are 8” long, average 3 lbs. and have flesh that is dry and sweet with a finer grain than most winter squash. Golden-yellow flesh in a thin, dark-green, white-lined rind, flecked with gray. Delicious baked or for pies. 98 days.

This is one of the most popular of the winter or storage squashes. Vining plants are easy to grow and provide a rewarding crop for novice and experienced gardeners. The 6-8"/15-20 cm fruit has sweet, thick orange flesh and stores well for fall and winter meals. Enjoy baked and served with butter and brown sugar.

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 sow seed in the spring when the soil has warmed. Plants prefer fertile soil. For best results, loosen soil with a spade or fork, working in vegetable food and organic matter and smooth with a rake. Firm soil over seed and keep moist.
Care: Keep soil moist, weed free and feed monthly. May be grown on a trellis.
Harvest: Allow fruit to remain on vine until skin is hard enough to resist scratching or puncturing. Pick before frost, leaving part of stem attached. Cure fruit for one week in a warm, dry place and then store in a cool place (45-55F) with low humidity.
Your Health: Rich source of Vitamin A; also supplies Calcium, Iron, Potassium, Vitamin C and some B vitamins.
