Soil and Water: Provide squash plants with deep mounds of organic matter, rich soil, and heavy even water. All squash are extremely frost sensitive, so use plastic mulches to heat soils in early spring and row covers to protect from frost at both ends of the growing cycle, especially in short growing seasons.


Planting and  Growing: After all chance of frost has passed, plant 4-5 seeds in hills 2-4" apart. When the young plants are established, thin each hill to two to three plants each.


Harvesting and Storage: Harvest when the fruits have turned a deep solid color and the rind is hard. Harvest the main part of the crop before heavy frosts hit your  area. Cut squash from the vines carefully leaving two inches of stem attached. Unlike many winter squash, Delicata can be used right after harvest. No curing necessary.
