Squash IntroductionCultivation InstructionsSeed Saving Instructions
Squash fruits vary in shape, color and flavor. Flowers, seeds and growing tips of vines are all edible. All fruits can be eaten when small and immature as summer squash, and mature as winter squash.In spring after soil warms, or with summer rains, sow a few seeds 1" deep in basins 3-6' apart, allowing room for abundant vine growth. Squash likes soil rich in compost.An insect-pollinated annual, varieties of the same species will cross. Allow fruits to ripen and mature on the vine until skin is hard and stem brown. After harvesting, fruit needs to after-ripen for 30 days in cool location. Remove seeds, wash and dry before storage.
