Cucurbita pepo

Item #3076

90 days. A baked and buttered Honey Boat with or without a sprinkling of cinnamon sugar makes a succulent treat for a chilly autumn day! The rich, golden-orange squash has a delectably sweet, nutty flavor. High in calcium, potassium, folate, and vitamins A & C. There’s no better way to enjoy summer sunshine in the depths of winter. 6-foot vines.

This packet sows 8 mounds.

Days to Emerge:
5-10 days

Seed Depth:
1”

Seed Spacing:
3 seeds
per mound

Mound Spacing:
4’-6'

Thinning:
When 2” tall
thin to 1-2
per mound


When to sow outside: RECOMMENDED. 2 to 4 weeks after average last frost, and when soil temperature is above 60°F.

When to start inside: Not recommended except in very short growing seasons, 2 to 4 weeks before average last frost. Sow in paper or pulp pots that can be planted directly into the ground. Transplant when soil temperature is at least 60°F.

Harvesting: Harvest just before the first fall frost, when the squash’s rind is hard enough that you can’t dent it with your fingernail. Cut (don’t break the stems off), leaving 2” of stem attached. If stem attachment is broken, the squash will rot in a few weeks. Though fruits are hard and may seem indestructible, treat them gently; a bruised squash spoils quickly.
