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.

Row Spacing: 3'–4'

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

Harvesting: Harvest frequently to increase yield; squash seem to get monstrous overnight. While edible at almost any size, seeds are less developed in young fruit, therefore more tender. Using a knife or clippers, cut squash off including some of the stem. By including stem, the fruit is sealed and less likely to mold or dry out. Harvesting Blossoms: Look for male, non-fruit producing flowers that have long stems and harvest just before use (female flowers have a swollen mini-squash at the base of the flower and shorter stems).

These squash are delicious. The germination rate is not as good as some of the other squashes I bought from BI, the plants grow a bit slower, and they are not as productive (squash per plant per day) as other varieties. But if you do not mind a bit of fussiness, these are wonderful.

Pretty packaging but no oomph!

Implanted these seeds on three separate occasions during the early spring (Feb-Apr) this year and to my disappointment, nothing grew. I even tried germinating them indoors in a ziplock bag with a napkin and some water (remember elementary science?) and still nothing. I think I got some bad seeds. I am so very sad. I hoping these would provide a bumper crop for our family.

While we enjoyed the novelty of this fun-shaped squash, it wasn't as prolific as we had hoped. Then again, neither was the zucchini this year. I still have seeds left. Maybe next year will be a better summer squash year.
