Squash Sunbeam 5 Seeds
Vigorous bush plants, golden yellow scalloped fruit. Distinctive flavour. Some studies show that yellow scallops are less attractive to bugs. Some green on the blossom end.
Start in individual pots then transfer when all risk of frost is past. For succession, later plantings can be straight into the ground. Fast maturing squash varieties for summer growing. Not suitable to store like pumpkins. Usually grown to pick when young and used without removing rind or seeds.
Protect from frost. Water well. Grow on well mulched, raised area. Shelter from strong winds.
A spray with a 5gm/tsp Bicarbonate of Soda in 600ml/pint of water will help slow powdery mildew when it appears.
