Tivoli Spaghetti Squash

95 days. Cucurbita pepo. This award-winning Japanese variety yields scads of 10" to 12" by 7" Squash with pale beige skin and flesh on compact plants. To harvest, cut each Squash off the vine and leave it in the sun to cure for a day before storing at room temperature for up to two months (versus just two weeks chilled). For carbohydrate avoiders, Tivoli may be baked, sliced in half (remove seeds and fibers) and fork-scraped to yield pasta-like strands of light, buttery sweet flesh that may be anointed with marinara sauce and freshly grated Parmesan. (F1.)

One packet of about 25 seeds

  • Information
  • There is something extraordinary about the aroma of baking Winter Squash, bubbling with butter and brown sugar. Sun-loving Winter Squash is best direct-sown in well-draining, fertile, 60°F soil, two weeks past the last spring frost date. Plant them with plenty of elbow room since they love to ramble. Squash is simple to grow and transforms easily into nutritious, heart-warming dishes: soups, gratins or sumptuous Thai or Indian curries. Squash requires fertile soil and room to stretch in hot sunshine. Harvest with a sharp blade when skin is hard and the mature coloration appears, leaving some stem. Cure in the sun for ten days or in a dry room for five days. Properly cured Squash, kept cool and dry, keeps all winter long. Bee friendly. Deer resistant.

    Average seed life: 3 years.
