Winter Squash Organic Collection
Includes a classic AAS winner, a hard-to-find buttercup, and more!
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):
