SQ762A - Reno
C. pepo. Reno is a classically shaped acorn squash with moderate furrows and a dependable dark green colour. The strong, single-stemmed, bush plants are very productive. Reno acorn squash seeds produce fruit that have golden yellow flesh that is fine textured with a sweet nutty flavour. If you grow Reno, it won't be a gamble. Sometimes acorn squash plants produce vast foliage and few fruits. Reno acorn squash does quite the opposite. Flowers appear earlier in the year than some other varieties, so there is a greater potential for a long harvest window. Be sure to plant lots of bee-attracting flowers nearby so that every female blossom gets the best potential for setting fruit.

How To Grow
The three species of squash that we offer represent a wide variety of shapes and colours. Each will cross-pollinate readily within their species. For instance, all C. pepo will cross-pollinate with each other, but not with C. maxima or C. moschata. For people who want to save their seeds, this is a very important consideration. The fruits themselves will not be affected by cross pollination, but the seeds inside will be, so squash need to be grown in isolation from other members of their species if seed saving is the goal.
