Vine. Oval golden squash is easy to grow and cook.
Baked, microwaved, or boiled fruits divide into spaghetti-like strands with a fork.
Vines are productive, adaptable, and can climb a trellis or run along the ground.
BOTANICAL NAME: Curcurbita pepo
Start seeds indoors in flats or pots, up to a month before last frost date. Transplant seedlings 18" apart after frost is over or direct-sow when soil is warm. Amend soil with ample amounts of compost or decomposed manure. Diatom dust on the stems and surround soil helps against squash bugs (use drip watering or water in one spot only, to leave dust in place). Harvest before heavy frost or when stems are dry. Leave 1" stem.
