Raven Summer Squash (F1 Hybrid, 48 Days)

Quick, strong growth and open, clean plants for easy picking. Fits into a garden well without sprawling. Cylindrical fruit with tender skin is dark and glossy; full of flavor, raw or cooked. Kept producing to the end of the summer for us, while others withered away. 

20 seeds

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 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 last frost. 

Sowing Outdoors: Sow after last frost when 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.

Squash poking through

So far so good, and I was conservative this year because of late frosty nights. Wanted to protect the seedlings, and transferred them to the outside garden boxes. Should be squashy by end of June.

spring seed order

Still early spring here and all I can say at this point is that the tomato seedlings are doing great under their lights. I'll be happy to give you a review later in the year when the garden is up and producing. Thanks.
