Sweet Meat (110 days)



Vigorous and spreading, this amazing tasting squash can top 10 pounds or more.

Sweet meat squash is soft grey-green to deep green on the outside, the sweet, fine-grained orange flesh is an amazing keeper and great for pies! 

Excellent grower in our cool California coastal climate. 

Sweet meat makes a great addition to any meal.  Taste almost like a sweet potato.  We have even cut up chunks, put butter on them and popped them on the grill in some tin foil.  YUM!!

We have had this squash keep for up to 8 months in a root cellar.

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.
