Tivoli Spaghetti Squash (F1 Hybrid 98 days)

2 reviews

Growing more densely in less space, an improvement upon the older, long vining spaghetti squash varieties. This was released in 1990 as the first compact, bush spaghetti squash becoming an AAS award winner and continues to be a successful variety, 25 years later. Oval shaped fruits have a smooth, light creamy yellow exterior, weighing in at 4-5 lbs and producing 4-6 per plant.

15 seeds 

 Tivoli Spaghetti Squash (F1 Hybrid 98 days)

PLANTING

Cucurbita pepo

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.

    Not a bush plant

    Though it has grown well and produced nice, big squash, it is not a bush plant. I would describe it as a shorter vine. It is also not resistant to downy mildew.

    Space saving and productive

    This is new to my garden this year. Compact plant with good productivity in short time period. Did three plantings up through July and all produced delicious nice sized squash. Very healthy pasta alternative, just bake in halves on cookie sheet, face down in olive oil for 30-40 minutes @ 375 degrees. Scoop out and enjoy!
