Australian Butter Squash - (Cucurbita maxima)

$3.15

Australian Butter Squash is from Diggers Garden Club, Australia.

Prolific, tasty and a versatile winter squash. 12-15 lbs. with a small seed cavity and a great keeper.

Excellent for baking with its pumpkin shape and thick orange flesh and hard shell. The flesh is creamy, stringless and lends itself to many cooking methods.

Growing Tips:

Sow 5 seeds per hill, 4 feet apart. Thin to best 2-3 plants.

Squash seeds dislike cold soil. It's better to wait until the soil is warm to plant the seeds.

Also, squash and melons don't like to have their roots disturbed, so when thinning out seedlings in hills, cut the stems of those you want to remove, rather than pulling them out.
