Winter Squash, Delicata Bush
This is a pre-order. All pre-orders will be delivered when the season is just right for them. Winter Squash are planned to be delivered or available for pickup in mid-May.
This white and green striped fruit has a slightly nutty flavor and is perfect for roasting, baking, and putting soups. It needs a bit of space—preferring to spread out its 4 to 5 foot long vines.
Winter Squash: Home grown Winter Squash are a special sweet treat for later in the year. And if they are allowed to cure, they can be stored and eaten for months to come! Usually growing on long vines they do well either sprawled along the ground or trellised if you are help support them a little bit.
Growing Tips: Winter Squash loves deep, rich garden soil so make sure to work in a couple scoops of compost before planting. I strongly recommend planting the seedlings into a mound of soil about 8 inches high to help the soil drain well.
