95 days. 2.5 - 4.5 lbs/1-2 kg. Nice size, shape and uniformity. Tan fruit have thick necks, small seed cavities, smooth exteriors and average 10 in/25 cm in length. Vigorous vines - excellent for peeling and boxing for chainstore sales. Great orange interior colour and taste.

CULTURE:Sow all types of winter squash, outdoors June 1st. when the soil temp. has reached 60-65°F/16-18°C temps. during the day.

SPACING:Large vine types, should be planted in rows 9 - 10 ft/2.7 - 3 m apart. Small and bush types require rows 6 - 8 ft./2 - 2.4 m apart. Space plants 4 ft/122 cm apart in the rows for both types.

CULTIVATE:Keep plants well cultivated, fairly shallow as long as possible without injuring the vines.

HARVEST:Winter squash should be allowed to ripen thoroughly in the field. Winter squash must be picked before your first frost and cured for 10 days or 2 weeks before storing. Curing hardens the outer skin, reduces high water content and improves eating quality.

CURING:Pile fruit in the field for 2 weeks during dry weather, before frosts - or keep fruit inside at room temp. of 80°F/27°C and 80% relative humidity for 4 weeks.

STORAGE:Squash require a warm dry condition for storage. Handle fruit carefully to prevent bruising, leave a small space between fruit in single layers. Maintain a temp. of 60°F/16°C degrees and relative humidity of 70%

FREEZING:Cut into chunks, peel, cook until soft in a little water. Mash, cool, pack and quick freeze.
