This Hybrid Squash Rivals the best winter squash for eating quality. The lightly ribbed, flattened round fruits are smooth and hard-shelled with a cool greenish-blue-gray color that makes them beautiful enough for table centerpieces and autumn displays. They weigh 9 to 11 pounds with a 10 to 12 inch diameter. The sweet orange flesh is fine-grained with flavor that compares with buttercup squash. Makes superb soups, stews, and pies plus it bakes and freezes well. Vigorous high-yielding vines have good resistance to Cucumber Mossaic Virus and Papaya Ring Spot.
PLANTING INSTRUCTIONS: Vining types of winter squash require warm growing weather and will withstand hot weather but are easily killed by frost. In northern areas, we recommend sowing seeds indoors in peat pots 3 to 4 weeks before transplanting outdoors. To direct seed, sow the seed at a depth on 1 inch after danger of frost has passed. Hills of 6 or 8 seeds may be planted 8 feet apart and thinned to 3 or 4 plants. Planted in rows with a spacing of 8 to 10 feet, sow 2 seeds every 2 feet and thin to the best plant per spot. Harvest when fruit is mature and skin is hard. Winter squash will keep well if stored in cool, dry place. Exposure to frost may reduce storage quality. Fruits also make fall decorations.
