Queensland Blue Squash 
(Cucurbita maxima)

This winter squash was introduced to the U.S. in 1932. A beautiful blue 10-12 lb. fruit. Most fruits are the classic rounded turban shape. This superb keeper from Australia has thick, gray-green skin, deep ribbing, and sweet orange flesh that is wonderful for baking, soups, pies, cakes and muffins. The vigorous 6 - 8 feet vines need a lot room to roam so must be planted at least 24 - 36" in rows 4 feet apart. They will on average take 7 - 12 days to germinate. It is a tender annual that is very easy to grow. It loves full sun and needs moderate watering.

Harvest when vines have begun to die back and fruit has reached its full size and final color. Cut fruit from vines leaving a 1-2 inch stem for good storage. Store at 50-55F in a dry place. Bring in before the first frost to avoid chilling damage that reduces storability.
