100 day. Cucurbita maxima. I love buttercup squash. A nice size for a smaller family, serving about 4 people with one squash. It has a nice sweet and rich squash flavor.
Minimum of 25 seeds per packet.
Planting Depth: 1 inch
Plant Spacing: 4 feet
Direct seed after last danger of frost and soil temperatures are above 60°F or start indoors 3 weeks before transplanting. The roots are delicate, so if you start indoors take care not to disturb the roots when transplanting.

This squash was easy to get started and flourished in my garden. Each squash feeds 2-4 people so it's perfect for the average family. I cut mine in half, scoop the seeds, and place the halves in a crockpot. Freezes well. I love the flavor and will be planting again next year!
