PINK BANANA SQUASH (105 days)

2

Picture a 2-3' long pink banana. This elongated squash is 6-8" in diameter with a small seed cavity. The medium-dry flesh is medium orange and the flavor is exceptionally sweet. Borne on quite long vines so not for space savers. 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.

Impressive!

NOT for space savers is NO joke! I kept mine to one vine, cutting off all side shoots and still had waaaaaay too much squash on a 20+ vine that is still growing (Aug 30) and fruiting. Very nice squash which is delicious cooked like a summer squash when young/small (10" or less) and smooth, sweet and tender when allowed to mature. Oh, and HUGE! My first squash was split up generously between my siblings and their families and my parents, with plenty left over for me. Squash were produced every foot-or-so along the vine, very productive (I considered not growing zucchini next year, since this gives me summer And winter squash and is so yummy). It's been awesome growing this, I would recommend everyone try it at least once - you may be hooked!

Delicious

I made squash soup with this and shared with family. They said it was the best squash soup they had ever tasted. Easy to grow, but vines do grow about 10-15 feet.
