Description

The spaghetti squash is native to Japan. The fruits are cooked as a whole - either in the oven or in a pot. Subsequently, the pulp can be removed and produces many small strips that actually look like spaghetti. This pumpkin variety is also very
interesting for people who are looking for gluten free low carb alternatives to pasta.

Package with 5 spaghetti pumpkin seeds

Growing instructions

Preculture in April. Plant in pots and transplant outdoors after a hardening phase after the blackthorn winter in May. When planting, be very careful not to damage the sensitive root ball. In late May, the pumpkins can also be sown directly outdoors. Space the plants about 100 cm apart from each other.
Loves a permeable, nutrient-rich soil, warmth and plenty of water.
