STARSHIP SCALLOP SUMMER SQUASH (F1 hybrid 45 days)

Germ 7-10 days
Starship is a classic, shiny green, patty-pan type with the exceptional earliness of a hybrid as a bonus. The very attractive, nearly pure green, 4” fruit come in bunches on vigorous plants, and remain quite flattened - like a starship. 20 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- 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. Fertilize on a regular basis by watering with compost tea. Sow every few weeks for a continuous supply.
