We feel this may be the best tasting acorn squash you can grow. The 10cm (4in) fruits are just right as individual portions. They have a delightfully sweet flavour and are produced on compact, powdery mildew-resistant plants. Children will enjoy this variety.
Sow indoors March - May singly on edge in pots, 1.5cm/half-inch deep. Temperature of 60-68°F/15-20°C . Thin out to the strongest seedling when plants are large enough to handle. Harden off late May - June. Plant out June. Sow outdoors May, two seeds per station on edge, 90cm/3ft between plants. Keep well watered. Pinch out growing tips when 4-5 fruits have set. Harvest September - November.
