Acorn Squash Seeds
This vigorous and compact bush plant will produce 5 to 8 full-size, high quality fruits per plant, weighing approximately 1½–2 pounds each. Uniform, sweet, meaty fruits won’t take over the yard. Nothing beats the rich, nutty flavor of baked winter squash on a chilly, autumn day. Flavor improves in storage. And the fruits have an interesting shape to boot!

Name: Bush Acorn Squash – Winter
Botanical Name: Cucurbita pepo
Days to Maturity: 75
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.
