Product Description

Ornamental Squash ‘Speckled Hound’
Cucurbita maxima

This eye-catching, light orange pumpkin is topped with blue-green streaking that looks like melted wax has dripped down its sides. A flattened, wheel-like appearance makes ‘Speckled Hound’ a natural for long-lasting fall decorating, and its dense flesh has a sweet, nutty flavor that can be stuffed and roasted.

Site: full sun

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.
