8

Germ 7-10 days / Moschata
The massive long and curved neck of this butternut type squash is packed with dense and sweet flesh that can grow to the magnificent size of 20 lbs. One squash goes a long way! It is a very good keeper and is excellent for pies and canning. 15 seeds

PLANTING:

Indoors- Plant in individual biodegradable peat/cowpots 1/2”-1” deep, 3-4 weeks before last frost with soil temperature 70 degrees. Transplant 36” apart after last frost without disturbing the roots.

Outdoors- 1/2”-1” deep after last frost, in warm soil at least 70 degrees. Sow a few seeds per space/hill with 24-36”.

Harvest- Before heavy frost. Determine ripeness when it has turned color has a dull dry skin and you can’t dent the skin with your thumbnail. Leave two inches of the stem on squash and manage carefully so there is no damage which can shorten its storage life. Curing for 7-10 days in the sun to harden the rind and increase storage quality.

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. Fertilize on a regular basis by watering with compost tea. Select the more compact varieties if your space is limited.

Neck pumpkins

I have ordered a lot of seeds from you and have always had a good experience. Seeds are great, and shipping is very fast. I usually have my seeds within a few days. I will always continue to order from you and would recommend it to anyone.

Neck Pumpkin Winter Squash

So far, so good. I planted in the raised bed after I pulled my lettuce and spinach and they came up well and so far have been very hardy. I remember eating these as a kid and am looking forward to harvest.

huge squash

These gave 2-3 squash per plant and weighted 10-12 lbs on average. They store well, and taste good, similar to butternut. They got a WOW from everyone who saw them. Made good soup and pie as well as eating baked.
