(added emphasis mine) My experience has been the opposite. Any dirt remaining on summer squash often becomes embedded in the skin during storage, and impossible to remove without peeling. Those locations will also be the first to begin shriveling or spoiling, so I wash summer squash immediately following harvest.If storing yellow squash or zucchini in the refrigerator, do not wash the squash before storing. They are best stored in a plastic bag that has had a few holes poked in it for airflow, and then placed in the vegetable crisper drawer.
Outrageous!!! but if ever he pulls this one of... that will be great!! I hope you can, I will still be monitoring this thread. maybe I can learn a thing or two within it.A number of outfits now sell for that Tetsukabuto Squash.
A hybrid of C. moschata and C. maxima. Outrageous! I wonder if the seeds of those Tetsukabuto are viable. Johnny's says that it "Can also be used as a rootstock for enhancing vigor and soil disease resistance in melon, watermelon, and cucumber." What!!??
I'm now dependant on Johnny's for the Cha Cha, f1. I probably need to save and plant 100 seeds of their Buttercup neighbors to see if I can get a useful cross like @flowerbug 's.
i'll be interested to hear how that squash turns out for you!...
The Tesukabuto is a 100 day squash. I have enuf trouble with the buttercup and kabocha maturing. What did I decide to do? Buy seed for the earliest pie pumpkin that I could find: Cinnamon Girl ! Expensive!
I hope that the "short vines" doesn't mean low-vigour. Some varieties of bush squash have been disappointing.
