How to Grow

Transplant: Sow 1-2 seeds in 1 1/2-2” cell-type containers or pots, and thin to 1-2 plants/cell with scissors. Harden plants 4-7 days by reducing fertilizer, water, and temperature, moving flats outside if there is no frost danger. Transplant after frost danger, earlier only if plants are to be covered with floating row covers, about 18” apart. Take care not to disturb roots! 

Direct seed: Sow in late spring when soil is at least 70°F (21°C) and weather settled after all frost danger. Sow 2 seeds/ft., 1" deep, in rows 3' apart. Thin plants 24" apart in the row.

Harvest: When stems are drying, fruits have mature color, and skin is hardening, cut stems about 1" from the fruits. Handle fruits very carefully. 1 or 2 light frosts are tolerable, but a hard frost or repeated light frosts will damage fruits. 

Curing: To dry and toughen skins, expose fruits to the sun for 5-10 days, covering at night when frost is expected. To cure indoors, expose squash to 80-90°F (27-32°C) with ventilation for 3-5 days. 

Storage: Store at 50-55°F (10-13°C) with 50-75% humidity and good air circulation.

Diseases and pests: At time of planting, cover with row cover to protect from insect pests. Control cucumber beetles, squash bugs, and vine borers with azadirachtin or pyrethrin. Control of cucumber beetles early in the season is important, as the insects spread bacterial wilt disease. Prevent disease with crop rotation and good sanitation.
