Botanical Interests Winter Delicata Squash Seeds
This petite winter squash is as sweet as honey and weighs just ¾ to 1 ½ pounds – the perfect size for one or two servings. Though you can find Delicata type squash in the grocery store, the extra-sweet, nutty, orange-fleshed 'Honeyboat' is a gourmet delight that is hard to find. The squash grow on 6' vine. After harvest, they will store well for several months, allowing you to have home grown winter squash well into winter. Winter squash is rich in calcium, potassium, vitamin C, vitamin A, and folate – there's no better way to enjoy the summer sunshine in the depths of winter!
When to plant outside: Spring, 2-4 weeks after the average last frost date and when soil temperatures have risen above 60 degrees.
When to start inside: Not recommended, unless you live in a very short short season climate. 3-4 weeks before the average last frost date. Sow in individual pots for direct planting.

About Botanical Interests
Curtis and Judy met while waiting to interview for the same horticultural job and soon found they shared a boundless enthusiasm for gardening. Botanical Interests began out of their mutual passion and personal desire for better quality seed and more informational tools to help and inpire gardeners.
"We wanted a level of purity and quality that wasn't easy to find," recalls Curtis. So they searched out the highest quality seed available and began their business in 1997, in the spare bedroom of their Colorado home. The business objectives they established then still hold strong for them now: to inspire and educate gardeners; to provide high quality seed to their customers; and to create an enjoyable work place for employees.
Over the years, Judy and Curtis' family has grown along with their line of seeds which now attracts and pleases customers nationwide.
