  • Information
  • A reliable warm weather producer, Summer Squash should be sown as transplants 3 to 4 weeks before the last frost date. Or it is best direct-sown when the soil is above 50°F. Thin skinned, they store poorly, so harvest right before use. Keep picking to ensure continued production. Avoid baseball bats~enjoy them small and sweet in ratatouille, stuffed and baked, grilled or sautéed with pasta. Bee friendly. Deer resistant.

    Average seed life: 2 years.
