Organic Guatemalan Blue Squash Seeds (91 days)

Contains 3 gram squash seeds

A Guatemalan heirloom that belongs to the Banana group of squashes. 

A hard to find variety that produces a 8-10 pound, slate blue squash with a golden yellow flesh. 

Guatemalan Blue is an excellent table quality squash.

Very productive. 

Vining habit.

Slice off just what you need and keep the rest in the fridge. 

We love to roast them on the bbq pit.  Very rich flavor with a creamy texture.

Dr. Carol Deppe (plant breeder) says "they are so delicious."  This is how she saves seed from them. 

Very rare squash!  Learn to save seed!

Planting Tips For Heirloom Winter Squash Seeds:

Heirloom winter squash don't mind the heat as much as their name implies.  Only plant once the soil temperature warms to at least 70 degrees and keep in mind that most heirloom varieties of winter squash take 110 days to mature.  So be sure to leave enough time to allow them to fully develop. 

Plant 3-6 heirloom squash seeds per hill.  Once they have shown true leaves and grown in size, you should thin out to the 3 strongest plants.  Remember, harvest these winter squash continually in order to keep the plant producing.

Seed Care tips for Heirloom Winter Squash:

Heirloom seeds are hardy but always take care with your garden seeds to give them the appropriate amount of moisture - not letting the vegetable seeds dry out prematurely or overwatering and possibly having them rot.
