Few things in gardening are more satisfying than, in the heart of winter, dining on succulent squash from the garden, harvested and stored for the long term. In this collection, you get 4 superb varieties, all organic, so that you can fill your cellar with delicious eating all winter long!

Winter squash has great storage ability. It is grown like summer squash (sown 1 inch deep after all danger of frost), but the seeds should be spaced 4 to 6 feet apart. Harvest it when the plants die back or just before frost. Cut and cure the fruit in a well-ventilated area, then store at 50 to 55 degrees Fahrenheit.

In this collection, you save on 4 of our very finest. Here's more information about each variety you'll receive (1 packet each, for a total of 4):

Vegetable Spaghetti Organic - 100 days. Delicious, tender flesh in oblong yellow fruits! Best harvested at about 8 to 10 inches long, the fruit contains masses of tasty strings that can be served like noodles for a nutritious, low-calorie treat.

Burgess Buttercup Organic - 95 days. Sweet and tender turbans 3 to 5 pounds each are easy to grow and great for storing. Each 15-foot vine sets up to 12 fruits!

Delicata Organic - 105 days. The best for long-term storage, this nutty-sweet squash reaches 7 to 9 inches long and up to 1 1/2 lbs. Productive vines produce 6+ fruits each.

Waltham Butternut Organic - 105 days. The classic name in butternut squash is this 1970 AAS Winner. Still the most popular variety on the market, it has a nutty-sweet flavor and fine texture. 4- to 5-pound fruits arise generously on vine borer-resistant plants.
