Table Princess Winter Squash (F1 Hybrid, 75 Days)

Good size, earliness, a compact growth habit, excellent flavor with an almost fiber free flesh, and good storage ability characterize this hybrid acorn type. Fruit is somewhat rounder and heavier than other acorns. Can be grown in just 9 square feet. 

15 seeds

PLANTING

Cucurbita pepo

Germination: 7-10 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 after last frost, 36-48" apart. 

Sowing Outdoors: Sow after last frost when soil temperature is over 70ºF. Sow a few seeds every 36-48". 

How much does a packet plant: 12-15 foot single row, 3-5 hills

Harvest: Before heavy frost. Determine ripeness when the skin has turned color and becomes dull dry. You will be unable to create a dent when pressing your thumbnail into it. Leave two inches of the stem on the squash and manage carefully so there is no damage which can shorten storage life. Cure for 7-10 days in the sun to harden the rind and increase storage quality. Wipe any debris off skin before storing in a cool dark place with 50-55ºF temperatures and 50-65% humidity.

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.

Call back later

The “purchase experience” was fine. Check back in four months after I’ve planted, nurtured, grown and harvested the fruits of my labor. Your survey email will have long been forgotten and likely deleted, by then.

Sprouted and produced nicely

The seed order for "Table Princess Winter Squash" shipped and arrived in a good time frame. We planted 4 seeds late in the season (Early August in zone 5) and all four seeds sprouted and produced good harvestable squash before we pulled the plants from the garden this month (Mid October).

Winter squash seeds / Naples tomato seeds

Excellent to order from . So far about 75 0/0 of germinate. Cuke beetles got some, others growing slowly. (Squash) Tomatoes germinated 80% or more. Plants about 4” in garden now.
