SQ731A - Table King Organic
C. pepo. Table King Organic squash seeds are an All America Selections Winner for compact growth, uniformity, and flavour. It's also pretty fast maturing, so a good choice for growers with shorter seasons. The bushy plants stay only around 1m (3') in diameter, but bear five to eight 800g (1.5 lb) acorn squash each. The fruits are very dark skinned, with pale orange, fibreless, sweet flesh, and the flavour actually improves with storage. This space saving variety is a great choice for urban growers or for high-yield field production. Store the fruits in a cool, dry place, and they will last for months.

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.
