Heirloom Early Straightneck Squash Seeds
A summer squash borne on bush vines, yielding fruits up to 14" (35 cm.) long. Uniform lemon-yellow lightly-warted club shaped fruit. Bush plants are vigorous and very productive. Firm fine-grained thick flesh of excellent eating quality. Non-genetically engineered seeds.
Culture: Requires very rich soil, as squash is a voracious feeder. Sow 6-8 seeds in groups (hills) 3'-4' (90-120 cm.) apart. In the south, sow fall and spring. Thin to 2-3 plants per group. Water regularly from time of flowering until fruits ripen.
Harvest:Between 42-56 days, fruits are best at between 4"-7" (10-17.5 cm.) long. Very popular in the north because of early ripening.
