Botanical Name: Cucurbita pepo (hybrid)

Days to Maturity: 88 Days

Family: Cucurbitaceae

Native: United States and Northern Mexico

Hardiness: Frost-sensitive annual

Plant Dimensions: 5' – 8' vines

Variety Information: 3½" – 4" diameter, 4" – 5" tall, golden yellow fruit. Flesh is pale yellow, and forks away from the shell in spaghetti-like strands.

When to Sow Outside: RECOMMENDED. 1 to 2 weeks after your average last frost date, and when soil temperature is 70° – 85°F.

When to Start Inside: Not recommended except in very short growing seasons, 2 to 4 weeks before transplanting. Roots are sensitive to disturbance; sow in biodegradable pots that can be planted directly into the ground. Transplant when soil temperature is at least 60°F.

Days to Emerge: 5 – 10 Days

Seed Depth: ½" – 1"

Thinning: When 3 leaves, thin to 1 - 2 plants per mound.

Harvesting: Harvest when the squash's rind is hard enough that you can't dent it with your fingernail and before first frost. Cut stem, (don't break it off) leaving 2" of stem attached, which keeps the squash whole, leaving no opening for infection. Though fruits are hard and may seem indestructible, treat them gently; bruising can spoil squash.

Perfect Little Squash

5 out of 5 stars Jul 20, 2021
These little angel hair pasta squash are my favorite thing we've grown in the garden this year. The plants flowered and started producing squash early and have been very prolific. The squash cook up great and make great squash spaghetti. Perfect size for a meal for two.

This was a hit with me, my pup, and my neighbors. It's very prolific and early to ripen here in So Cal. Too hot to turn on the oven, so I wrap in foil and cook cut side down on the grill. The flavor is good. It is a bit difficult to cut into, but worth it.

Probably great, but....

My initial planting of 2 hills came up beautifully, but after first true leaves appeared, the local fauna consumed them completely. I then tried a late replant in a huge bag on my deck, with a small trellis for upward? growth. Ended up with 3 plants and maybe 4-5 very small fruits. Sadly, this area had an extraordinarily wet summer and the plants were decimated with leaf mold/ fungus. Picked the squash early and left outside to ripen, ehich they did. Held up well, and was happily surprised to get at least one serving from theses tiny squash.

Owner Response: Hi M.J., Row cover is incredibly helpful to protect plants from many kinds of pests. It is best if it is applied at sowing to keep pests out. While it may have been moisture and leaf loss that made for small fruit I also just wanted to note that container size can also play a role. Squash need a lot of root space (at least 5 gallons per plant) and if they were close and competing this can also result in smaller fruit. We sure hope you will try growing winter squash again!

Wow!

Three plants provided so much spaghetti squash that we have a lot in the freezer. Can be cooked and frozen or dried in a food dehydrator , both work equally well.
