Heirloom Squash ‘Gill’s Golden Pippin’ Acorn

Description

Small, orange, acorn-type fruits are an ideal size for single-serving winter squash. Five times more flavorful than most acorn squash, but about half the size, even beating some delicatas for flavor. Some larger fruits are big enough for stuffing. Its bright color & deep lobes are very attractive & make for good decoration as well. This variety was developed in the mid-20th century by the Gill Brother’s Seed Company of Portland, OR. 85 days.
Care: Plant 3-4′ apart in rows 6-8′ apart in full sun. Leave on the vine as long as possible, until rinds have hardened. Bring in after the first light frost, before rains.
