This outstanding winter squash is one of the earliest acorns. Vigorous, wilt tolerant, semi-bush vines produce handsome dark green fruits. High quality, fiberless orange flesh is thick and flavorful. Fruits are 5 inches by 6 inches, just the right size for two servings.

SOWING…Plant seed outdoors after all danger of frost is past or start indoors 4 to 6 weeks earlier. Make a group of 3 to 5 seeds placed in a ring about 3 inches across; cover with ½ inch of fine soil, well pressed down. Each ring of seeds is called a hill and hills should be spaced 4 to 6 feet apart each way.

THINNING…When plants are 3 to 6 inches tall (after second set of leaves appear), thin to the 3 strongest plants in each hill.

GERMINATION…Germinates in 7 to 14 days depending on soil and weather conditions.

REMARKS…Delicious in pies or cut into pieces and baked, steamed or boiled. Cut squash from vines with pruning shears.
