HARVEST FRUIT: Harvest regularly, 2-3 times a week, once plants begin to produce. Cut or gently twist off fruits when they have reached the desired size. For summer squash, 4-6″.

STORAGE: Keep fruit at 40-50°F with 95% relative humidity.

AVG. DIRECT SEEDING RATE: 3 seeds/ft., rows 6′ apart, 250 seeds/83′, 500 seeds/166′, 1,000 seeds/333′.
