( Hopi Winter Squash )
|Fruits can be solid green or striped with thick hard shells. There is a great variety in shapes, colors and types of squash, making them fun to grow. Growing pumpkins can be a great project for kids. The vines need plenty of room to sprawl, although some can be supported on a trellis. Summer or winter squash or pumpkins should be sown indoors in flats in short season areas, 3-4 weeks before the night soil temperatures have warmed up. After harvest they should be ripened for 30 days in a cool location.
Important Info : The skins are sometimes dried and made into musical instruments.
Seedlings should be gradually hardened off. Plants prefer rich, compost enriched soil. They will cross pollinate within their species.
