Description

Relatively new to the UK, Squash 'Jumbo Pink Banana' is a must-grow for all winter squash lovers. This formidable variety produces huge pale pink fruits that average 7-9kg each, but with a little encouragement can produce champion squashes up to 27kg in weight and 4ft in length! 'Jumbo Pink Banana' boasts sweet, flavoursome orange flesh and stores well. Reliable and high-yielding even in poor summers, this unusual variety will need plenty of space to ramble, but will reward you with a truly impressive crop. Height: 60cm (24in). Maximum spread: 6m (20ft).

Winter squash are a fantastic addition to any vegetable patch. Delicious roasted, baked, mashed or used in stews and soups, they are packed with vitamin A, very easy to grow and virtually pest-free – all they require is space to sprawl.

Sowing

Sow squash 'Jumbo Pink Banana' indoors in April for transplanting later on. Sow seeds on their sides in individual 7.5cm (3in) pots of seed compost at a depth of about 1.5cm (½in). Place in a propagator or seal pots inside a plastic bag at a temperature of 20-25C (68-77F) until germination, which takes 5-7 days. Do not exclude light, as this helps germination. Once germinated, grow squash on in cooler conditions until all risk of frost has passed and the plants are large enough to be transplanted outdoors. Gradually acclimatise squash plants to outdoor conditions over 7-10 days before planting in warm, well drained, humus rich soil in full sun. Choose a spot that receives at least 6 hours of direct sun per day.

More Info
Water squash plants regularly and copiously, around the plants and not over them. Do not allow the soil to dry out as this will impair their development. Hoe between plants regularly to prevent weeds from establishing and reducing air circulation. Once the fruits start to swell, feed fortnightly with a high-potassium fertiliser such as tomato feed. Harvest squash in late summer and autumn, before the first frosts, when the skin has hardened and the fruits start to crack near to the stem. Harvest squash by cutting each fruit from the stem leaving several inches of the stem attached.
