Extremely productive vines bear dozens of 4-5 inch, little “mini” spaghetti squashes. The semi-compact vines can be trained up a fence/trellis so the little golden squashes hang like ornaments. These little minis cook up quickly, making it fast and easy to fork out their spaghetti like flesh to top with pizza sauce or a little butter and grated cheese for a quick, nutritious and low-calorie dish. After harvest, these little squashes store very well to enjoy for many good meals.

Planting Instructions: Winter squash needs full sun, rich fertile soil and warm temperatures. Wait to plant until temperatures stay above 50°F (10°C) day and night. Sow groups of 2 to 3 seeds 2 feet apart and 1 inch deep in rows 4 feet apart. Thin to 1 strong seedling per group. Or make slightly mounded hills 2 to 3 feet across and 6 feet apart and plant 4 to 5 seeds in each hill. When seedlings have several sets of leaves, thin to the strongest 3 seedlings per hill.
All winter squashes need to mature properly, so wait to pick until rinds are fully colored up from dark green to bright yellow-orange. and tough enough to resist piercing with a fingernail and vines have died back. Then cut, leaving a good stem handle. Let them cure for 10 days in the sun, then store in a cool dry place and they’ll keep for months.
