Product Description

Ornamental Squash ‘Marina de Chioggia’
Cucurbita maxima

The deep blue-green rind of this eye-catching variety is covered in a thick layer of bubbly, warty bumps that make it look more like a geode than a squash. A must-grow for both eating and display. 

Details:
Plant type: annual
Spread: 6-8’
Site: full sun
Days to maturity: 95 days
Plant spacing: 18-30”
Pinch: not necessary 
Approx seeds per packet: 10

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.
