Name: Sweet Dumpling Squash – Winter
Botanical Name: Cucurbita pepo
Days to Maturity: 110
When to sow outside: 1 to 2 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.
