Papaya Squash - (Cucurbita moschata)

$3.35

Papaya Squash or Papaya Pumpkin Squash, an incredibly smooth and thick fleshed, sweet and nutty flavored papaya shaped squash that is gorgeous and vibrant yellow.

Ideal for stuffing. One of the most popular Asian winter squashes, but unknown here. Vining plants bear abundant 2-4 lb. squash that keep well.

Great winter squash variety for home gardens and market growers.

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.
