Keep well watered throughout the season. Feed and mulch regularly.

Sow April to May. Sow seeds 2cm ( 3/4in) deep in 7.5cm (3in) pots of good seed compost at 21- 25C (70-77F). Place in a propagator or seal container in a polythene bag until after germination which takes 5-7 days.Seeds can also be sown direct outdoors once the soil has warmed. Do not sow in cold soils. Sow 2 seeds every 90cm (36in) and thin out to the best seedling. Ideally grow under cloches until the plant is established.

Gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions for a few days before planting out after all frost risk has passed, 90cm (36in) apart each way.

Smooth and Creamy flavour 2011-01-28

I grew one of these down the allotment last year. I got 4 very large squash from one plant, but you had to keep checking the young fruit developing behind the flowers as they would start to rot quite quickly. Amazing looking things, harvested end of Oct, just eating now at the end of Jan. Made a vat of soup from just one squash and it had a smooth, creamy sort of taste. Will be making room for another plant this year, along with Harrier Squash and Potimarron as they're more prolific.
