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.
