Winter Squash - Sweet Dumpling

This variety produces highly ornamental, contrastingly marked fruits which appear in great numbers and store well for later use. The fruits have an excellent flavour and grow to 200-500g, an ideal size for culinary use. Hugely versatile, the flesh can be used for soups, pies, or roasts.

Sow indoors from March to May for surest results, 1.5cm deep, on edge, in small pots of compost. Water well and place in a warm position. A temperature of 15-20°C is ideal. Keep moist. Seedlings usually appear in 7-14 days. Gradually accustom plants to outside conditions, before planting out, from May to June, 90cm apart, into well-drained, fertile soil, when frosts are over. Or, sow outdoors, during May for ease, where they are to crop, 1.5cm deep, directly into finely-prepared, well-drained, fertile soil, which has already been watered. Allow 90cm between sowing positions. Sow two seeds on edge per position. Early sowings benefit from cloche protection. Thin to leave the stronger plant. Water well until plants are established. Harvest from September to October.
