Winter squash – Desert Spirit Landrace (Organic)


Beautifully diverse new landrace with amazing flavours, textures and colours. Bred and created by the folks at Wild Mountain Seeds in USA, the Desert Spirit has many varieties in its heritage, including Buttercup, our beloved Oregon Homestead Sweet Meat and others.

The great diversity of genes will make a beautiful range of colours and shapes with amazing flavours. We are excited to be offering such an enthusiastically bred strain of a landrace squash.

Apparently it is as vigorous as it is delicious with excellent storing qualities.

Winter squash tips: Sow in pots indoors from April and plant out in May; or sow direct in May. Squashes are very cold sensitive, so cover the plants with fleece if there is a danger of frost.

Squashes are hungry and benefit from a good dose of manure or compost added to the soil before planting. They also do well planted straight into the compost heap!
