Honey Baby Squash
Honeybaby squash is a hybrid variety that produces short, wide, lightbulb-shaped golden fruits. The squash are sweeter and nuttier than other varieties and can grow to be 6 - 7 inches long and weigh 6 to 8 ounces. Each plant produces about nine squashes but takes up little space due to their compact, 2 - 3 foot long, bush-like growth. Healthier plants that resisted powdery mildew, growing later into the season than other varieties in the humid south.
Honeybaby was awarded a national All-America Selection for its delicious flavor and space-saving habit. This variety is excellent for all garden types, including pots and grow bags.
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.
