Spaghetti Squash Seeds
Spaghetti squash is unique among winter squashes – when cooked, the flesh falls away from the shell in ribbons or strands like spaghetti, and retains a tender texture. Savory rather than sweet flavor. Each plant yields 5 to 7 large, pale yellow squash. Harvest when fruit is 8-10 inches long.

Name: Winter Squash ‘Spaghetti’
Botanical Name: Cucurbita pepo
Days to Maturity: 90
When to sow outside: 2 to 4 weeks after average last frost and when soil temperatures have risen above 60°F.
Harvesting: Harvest just before the first fall frost, (do not leave in the garden when temperatures drop below 33°F) when the squash’s rind is hard enough that you can’t dent it with your fingernail. Cut, (don’t break the stems off) leaving 2″ of stem attached. If stem attachment is broken, the squash will rot in a few weeks. Though fruits are hard and may seem indestructible, treat them gently; a bruised squash spoils quickly.
