Default Delicata Squash

How many fruit can I expect to get from one plant?

Hello

The Delicata Squash are big producers. But each week until your First Frost in your area, you will receive about 3 fully ripe ones each week starting in August.

They have a good 8-month shelf Life.

Wow, 3 each week? Do they need to be on a trellis? I’m excited to grow this next year��

Some Natives use a Trellis going downhill. But I let them go Free; as they are easy to control, Amen!!

Why do you have 1 Plant?

I’m gonna grow this next year. I need to know how many plants to grow to get a good yield. How many fruit should I get from each plant.

I would say each plant if grown in pretty optimal conditions without pests would produce maybe 5-8 fruit in a season
