Squash

True magic these plants are. One day you see a sweet fruit the size of thumb, turn your back, and they’ve grown a foot.

The summer Odessa variety is a delicious twist on the classic zucchini. Ribbed and striated green and white skin holds super juicy white fleshed meat that is incredible simply grilled with olive oil and salt.

Our short season pumpkin will be more than ready for picking in early October, and can be used for classic Jack-o-Latern decor and sweet pumpkin pie!

Contains 1 plant per pot.

 

AVAILABLE EARLY MAY!

Description

Summer Squash – Odessa:

This is a Ukrainian summer squash (a la zucchini) with light green skin and white flesh.

To Plant: Create a mound of soil about 1’ in diameter. Plant no more than 2 plants per mound, allowing AMPLE space for the squash to sprawl (often up to 4 to 5’’).

To Harvest: when fruits reach a desirable size. The larger the fruit, the less tender the flesh (most of the time).

Winter Squash – Pumpkin:

This is a classic Jack-o-Lantern pumpkin, great for decor or seeds (flesh not the best for eating).

To Plant: create a mound of soil about 1’ in diameter. Plant no more than 2 plants per mound, allowing AMPLE space for the pumpkins to trail and sprawl (often up to 5 or 6’).

To Harvest: usually ready around late September to early October. Pick when you’re ready to carve!
