Winter Squash - Delicata

Sale price Price $4.95 Regular price Unit price  per 

Delicata Squash:

   Mild tasting, thin-skinned, delicate squash. The smallish 15 x 8cm (6 x 3") fruits on this sometimes sprawling plant will store well for months after harvesting. Sweet and lovely. Delicata squash fruits are oblong and creamy white, striped with green bands. They have a very sweet, appealing flavour that people frequently compare with sweet potatoes. Allow the fruits to ripen fully on the vines, but harvest before frost. Give each fruit a wipe with a weak bleach solution, and then store in a cool, dry place and enjoy the squash all winter long.

Matures in 100 days. (Open-pollinated seeds)
