Nothing beats the rich, sweet flavor of baked acorn squash on a chilly, autumn day. 'Table King' is great for short seasons or late spring sowing, as it is early maturing for a winter squash. Compact, 4' vines are great for small gardens, and they are so easy to grow from seed! A 1974 AAS winner.

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.
