|Hydro / Soil||
Not recommended for hydroponics. Grows best in soil – especially in self-watering planters.
|Container / Indoors||
Plant 1 site in a 16" (10 gal) container. For each site plant 2 seeds 1" deep.
|Outdoor / Inground||
Plant 1 site per squarefoot. For each site, plant 2 seeds 1" deep.
These plants will grow to be 10-12” and will reap 5” honeynut squashes.
|Taste & Nutritional Value||
Sweet and nutty, taste sort-of like a more flavorful butternut squash. These small but mighty cuties are also more nutritious than their big sister- they have a ton of vitamin A and a ton of beta-carotene.
Honeynut Squash is the brainchild of celebrity chef Dan Barber (have you seen his episode on Volume 1 of Chef’s Table?) and Cornell Plant Breeding and Genetics professor Michael Mazourek. They bred this squash to be packed with taste and nutrition and it worked!
