Site: full sun
Days to maturity: 95 days

How to Grow: 
Squash dislike having their roots disturbed and do best when direct-sown. Plant seeds directly into the garden after all danger of frost has passed.

Harvesting/Vase Life: 
Harvest when fruit is fully mature and the stem attaching it to the vine begins to turn brown. Cut the stems with a knife or pruning shears rather than pulling fruits off the vine. Stems should be cut to 3-4 inches. If not used right away, cure for storage by setting in a warm, dry location for 1-2 weeks.
