Winterfest' is not your everday acorn sqush. Wait until you see it- white skin with orange spots and stripes makes it a feast for the eyes before you harvest it. Each squash will be 1-2 pounds with yummy orange flesh. A good keeper. Squash is a warm season crop. Direct seed outdoors after all danger of frost is over. Winter squashes remain in the garden for the entire growing season. 85 days from seed to harvest.
