Acorn Table Queen Squash
Indigenous to the Americas, the Acorn Table squash has been grown by Native Americans for thousands of years and was an essential part of the “Three Sisters” crops essential to many Native tribes: squash, corn, and beans. It was introduced to early European settlers in the 16th century and commercialized by the Iowa Seed Company in 1913.
Table Queen Acorn Squash can grow to about 12–24 inches and spread 4 feet across. Easy to grow and produce high yields of squash weighing 3 to 4 pounds each. Harvest when the stem starts to dry out, and the skin is too hard to pierce with a fingernail. Although considered a winter squash, acorn squash belongs to the same species as all summer squashes.
Plant next to dill, garlic, parsley, borage, marigolds, mint, oregano, rosemary, thyme, calendula, bee balm, catnip, catmint, zinnias, and snapdragons to repel harmful pests, attract predatory insects and pollinators. Interplant with peas and beans to add nitrogen to the soil and balance pH levels. Squash provides shade to radishes and other small root vegetables. Don't grow next to potatoes or pumpkins.
Starter will be in a 4" reusable nursery pot.
