Our Beautiful Heirloom Winter Squash is an extremely easy to grow variety with an exceptionally sweet flavor, fine texture and no bitter fruits! Our strain is top quality and far superior to the competition in every way! The Zeppelin is the most uniform, healthiest, thick walled, orangest, sweetest delicata on the market! Lovely ivory colored fruits with dark green stripes have the unsurpassed sweetness that gives delicata its good name! Even a first time gardener is sure to have success their first time growing these. This is a carefully selected variety of delicata from an old strain that was not affected when the trade allowed this beloved 1894 heirloom to be crossed by the lesser sweet dessert gourds! You will get LOADS of really tasty delicious 1-2 pound fruits and because our heirloom seeds are open pollinated, you can save the seeds from your garden and plant them next year!
Plant your seeds in a warm and sunny location with well drained fertile soil. You can plant your seeds directly into the ground as soon as the threat of frost has passed. Sow 1/2 - 1 inch deep in hills or rows spaced 1 foot apart in rows 5-6 feet apart 90-100 days.
