Choose the sunniest and largest area in your garden. Plant 5 to 7 seeds outdoors in hills. Planting should in early spring to mid-summer, 3 weeks after last frost and when soil has warmed up to at least 70 F. Plants grow 2 ft tall and vines spread up to 10 ft.

Soil Requirements:

Requires fertile slightly acid soil in a well drained location in the garden. Apply much and grass clippings, or straw around base of plant. Add well composted manure.

Water Requirements:

Keep soil consistently moist, but not waterlogged. Water well during dry and hot spells.

Use RootBlast, Vegetable Alive, and Slow Release Fertilizer when transplanting outdoors. Apply Miracle Gro every two weeks.

Harvest Tips:

Protect ripening pumpkins from damp ground by placing them on boards. Cut pumpkins carefully from plants to prevent damaging the vines.

I've been growing Cushaw Squash for 12 years. It's delicious and versatile. Cushaw squash is hands down the best keeper I've ever known. I had one that kept for over 22 months and would have kept longer but we cooked it for Thanksgiving pie and soup. Secret is to cure it in the sun for about a week, turning the fruit twice a day till you can't get a thumbnail into the skin. You won't be sorry!!!

I have grown and eaten cushaw pumpkins (not squash) my entire life. It is the best pumpkin pie you will ever make or ever have - no "strings" just beautiful smooth "meat" and no "hay" taste you seem to get with traditional orange pumpkins. You will love it.

My mom gave me some seeds to eat from a 50 lb squash - I saved a couple and planted them - one is already at least 20 lbs. But the seeds are DELICIOUS!
