Squash – Baby Spaghetti F1

An early maturing mini spaghetti squash variety with a semi-vigorous plant habit.  It matures around 2 weeks earlier than standard larger varieties.   The fruits are uniform egg shaped 400-600 gram each yielding 15-20 per plant.  The flesh is a pale yellow -orange with an excellent nutty flavour.  Will store well into winter.   Boil or roast the fruit whole for 20-30 minutes, remove the seeds, then fork out the spaghetti like flesh in long strands, serve with a sauce or season to taste, delicious.

Cultivation advice Squash – Baby Spaghetti F1

  • A sunny spot protected from strong winds is essential.
  • The soil must be well drained and rich in humus, the more the better.
  • Many winter Squash / Pumpkins like to sprawl out and need plenty of space. Vining Squash / Pumpkins require a larger area to run, whilst semi-vining and bush varieties of winter squash / courgette can be well contained.
  • For an early start (Mid / Late Apr) place a single seed edgeways 1/2 inch deep in seed compost in a 3 inch pot. The critical part is temperature, these need at least 65 F continuous soil temperature (preferably more to maximise germination rates) until germinated, so a propagator, well heated greenhouse or airing cupboard is ideal
  • Keep the soil moist ? water copiously around the plants, not over them.
  • Keep weed free to allow air circulation.
  • Once the fruits start to swell feed every 14 days with a tomato type fertilizer, these are greedy plants.
