Detailed Product Info

We heard about this rare variety from several customers and decided to try it for ourselves. We're glad we did! The violin shaped fruits have buff-colored, warty skin on the outside, and a small seed cavity. Each squash yields about 3-4 lbs of flesh per fruit. The flavor is sweet and rich- somewhere between a butternut and a kabocha. We roasted one for Thanksgiving and everyone raved about it. Needs space to sprawl.

Growing Instructions

Direct sow after frost, or start indoors 2-3 weeks earlier. Transplant in hills spaced 6' apart, 3 plants per hill, or in rows 36" apart. Plants can grow 6' or more, so give plenty of space to take over. Mulch early to help suppress weeds. Harvest when squash are buff colored with no trace of green. Cure in a dry, warm place for a week or so, then store in a cool, dry, dark place.
