So high-yielding and quick to finish it won an All-America Selection, Sugaretti Hybrid is a spaghetti squash that tastes as good as it looks. Resembling a delicata with its creamy rind striped in green, this hard-shelled winter squash offers nutty, sweet flavor that is terrific stewed, steamed, or baked. Use it as a pasta substitute for nutritious, low calorie eating!
Winner of a 2017 All-America Selection, Sugaretti finishes about a week quicker than many other spaghetti squash varieties. It offers enormous yields of 9- to 10-inch fruit, oblong and heavy, within a short period of summer. The determinate habit means that you can harvest your Sugaretti all at once, store it for winter, and then plant a new crop in its place. Great for gardeners with limited space to grow their food!
And the plant itself is more compact. It offers a semi-bush habit, spreading only about 2 feet wide, so you can squeeze Sugaretti into a smaller area than many other winter squash. And it offers outstanding resistance to powdery mildew!
Best of all is the flavor — sugary, as its name suggests, but also rich and creamy. You will love finding new ways to use this squash!
Squash is very easy to grow, and part of the Three Sisters Native American companion planting. (The other two sisters are beans and corn.) Give it sunshine, well-draining soil, and adequate water, and Mother Nature will do the rest!
Sow the seed 1 inch deep, thinning the plants to 3 to 4 feet apart in the garden. Packet is 20 seeds.
