Squash 'Harrier' F1 Hybrid (Winter)

Cucurbita moschata, Butternut Squash

Half-hardy Annual

Bushy. An outstanding early British-bred Butternut squash. In T&M's trials Squash Harrier F1 was the quickest to ripen, and was ready to harvest approximately 95 days from sowing. The bushy plants of Squash Harrier have an open habit allowing the sun to ripen fruits naturally on the plant giving added sweetness. Pear shaped fruits weigh 800g (1¾lb). 4 to 5 fruits per plant, with excellent long storage at 10C.

Place in a propagator or seal container in a polythene bag until after germination which takes 7-10 days.Seeds can also be sown direct outdoors once the soil has warmed. Do not sow in cold soils. Sow 2 seeds every 90cm (36in) and thin out to the best seedling. Ideally grow under cloches until the plant is established.
