Fordhook Summer Squash (57 Days)

 

PLANTING

Cucurbita pepo

Germination: 4-10 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 36-48" apart after the last frost. 

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

Harvest: Check and harvest a few times a week. Cut or kindly twist off fruit, starting at a 3-4”.

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.

    Satisfyed

    Very pleased with this zucchini, I had good germination and no losses during our long cold wet spring here in Wisconsin. Tidy bushes for my raised bed and nice production so far. Comparing it to another variety I am growing which has not produced yet!

    I got my garden in

    I got my garden in late due to travel and then leg problems. So I have very little to say about any of this because it’s not big enough yet.
