Butterscotch Winter Squash (F1 Hybrid 100 Days)


Cucurbita moschata

Germination: 7-10 days

Germination Temperature: Optimum soil temperatures 70-85ºF

Seed Sowing Depth: 1/2-1" deep

Sowing Indoors: 3-4 weeks before the last frost. Provide 70-85ºF soil temperature. Sow 2-3 seeds per cell/pot. Sowing into individual biodegradable peat/cow pots reduces root damage when transplanting. Transplant after last frost, 36-48" apart. 

Sowing Outdoors: Sow after the last frost when the soil temperature is over 70ºF. Sow a few seeds every 36-48". 

How much does a packet plant: 12-15 foot single row, 3-5 hills

Harvest: Before heavy frost. Determine ripeness when the skin has turned color and becomes dull dry. You will be unable to create a dent when pressing your thumbnail into it. Leave two inches of the stem on the squash and manage carefully so there is no damage that can shorten storage life. Cure for 7-10 days in the sun to harden the rind and increase storage quality. Wipe any debris off the skin before storing it in a cool dark place with 50-55ºF temperatures and 50-65% humidity.

Tips: Plant in fertile soil, amended with compost or well-rotted manure, and keep well watered. They benefit from growing on black plastic and by using row covers for weed, insect control, and more rapid growth.

I like your packaging of the seeds, it is more common sense, which is reflected in your pricing. On average your seed packages are at least a dollar cheaper then your competitor's

Butterscotch winter squash

I planted the seeds about a month ago. All came up and are heathy. No vines, fruit or harvest yet. I'm anxious to have some to try.

Seeds produced 100% germination! Plants are vigorous and lush. As always, great results with Pinetree products. Thanks

Poor germination

So far only two seeds germinated. Have them in South facing coldframe. Tried them earlier in the house but got nothing. Hoping a few more pop up.
