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 the 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 the last frost. 

Sowing Outdoors: Sow after the last frost when the 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.

I'll plant it again

This is one of several varieties of summer squash and zucchini that I planted. It produces well, and more importantly, squash pests (both squash bugs and borers) attack it last. Beautiful fruit and vigorous plants...

Squash at 115 degrees

I was introduced last year to zephyr by a friend who got a plant at a local farmer's market. I liked the flavor and texture, so I ordered seeds this year. I started them inside and placed them outside in a small "greenhouse" during the day and brought them in at night until the weather warmed up. They sprouted easily and this method worked well. I have one in a larger container and one in the ground. The ground is always better for nutrients. We had 115 degree weather. That was hard on the squash plants, especially in black containers. The leaves are looking yellow. I probably watered so much to keep up with the heat that he nutrients were leached out. Now, I topped the potted squash plants off with compost/manure. The one in the ground is doing well. It wasn't in the all-day heat and I started it later. I like the flavor and texture and they germinate easily and grow quickly.
