Vegetable Spaghetti Squash - 7 Heirloom Seeds 

Spaghetti Squash is also called gold string melon, it is unique among winter squashes; when cooked, the flesh falls away from the shell in strands like spaghetti and retains a tender, yet al dente, texture. The savoury flavour is delicious, and low calorie, with a simple bit of butter and salt. Each plant can yield 5 to 7 squash.

The pale yellow, oval fruits grow to 25cm (10") on long, productive vines. Spaghetti Squash keeps well for meals right through winter. Boil or bake the whole fruits, and then cut lengthwise down the middle. It's then easy to fork out the fibrous interior that looks just like pasta. Enjoy it simply seasoned as is, or topped with your favourite pasta sauce.


Care and Sowing Instructions

The yellow rind of this squash is smooth and very hard. After the fruits have ripened on the vines, give them a quick wipe down with a highly diluted bleach solution. If the skin is not nicked, the fruits will last for months. 

This is a frost-tender plant. Sow early spring & summer in a temperate climate, All year (if frost-free) for subtropical climates. Sow 20mm deep, 100cm apart. Seeds germinate best at 21-35°C soil temperature. Emerge in 7-10 days. The plant needs trellis. Harvest 15 weeks when the fruit is 22cm long & 1.8kg. Vines bear 4-5 squashes. Stores well up to 4 months 

A propagation note will be supplied with the seed packet for your convenience.

Germinate quickly, nice strong plants

Seeds arrived and have sprouted. It will be a while before I can review properly.

Excited for them to grow!

These germinated really well, and have been growing happily. They seem to trail quite a lot so something to consider when planning where they will be going. I soaked the seeds overnight to help germinate and allowed the the seedlings to grow four or so leaves before planting out. Excited to see the squash grow!
