ORANGE MAGIC SQUASH (F1 hybrid 85 days)

A delightful new mini hubbard, Orange Magic is both delicious and decorative. There are lots of fruit set on fairly short vines so it is great for home gardeners. The 6 inch, deep reddish orange stands out. 15 seeds.


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.

    Easy to grow and productive.

    The small packet of seeds produced a huge quantity of beautiful squash for us during a short Vermont summer. Overall, I was very happy with this squash. However, I would probably give it 4 stars for flavor. It was good, but not exceptional in any way, in terms of flavor and texture. If you want easy, productive for small space, early, and beautiful, then I highly recommend this squash.
