PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
 

Organic winter squash seed certified by Baystate Organic Certifiers.

Open PollinatedWhat do these symbols mean?
(5-10 lbs.) Also called Orange Hokkaido. One of the most outstanding winter squashes weve grown. Beautiful flavor, high quality flesh. Used for all types of dishes including pies and mashing.

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.
