Ornamental Squash Speckled Hound
Ornamental Squash ‘Speckled Hound’
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.

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.
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.
