Spaghetti Squash is an unusual vegetable that when cooked forms strips that look like spaghetti and can also be used as a substitute for it - crazy but true & kids will be amazed too!

Spaghetti squash is also known as 'Vegetable Spaghetti' or 'Spaghetti Marrow' and produces yellow-orange fruits that weigh up to 1.2kg. It is the flesh inside that is eaten; it has a mild, slightly sweet taste that is great at absorbing flavours and is excellent for low carb/low fat diets. Use as you would with pasta - just add a tomato or cheese sauce.

The squashes can either be cooked whole by baking in an oven for around an hour at 180°C or microwave for 10-12 minutes or boil for about 30mins, but the squash must be pierced several times with a sharp knife or it will 'explode' whilst cooking.

When cooked very carefully cut open the hot squash and separate strand with a fork. Or they can be cut up prior to cooking, cut into halves or quarters and then scrape out the seeds and cook rind side up for 30-40 mins at 180°C or microwave for 6-8 mins or boil for 20 mins or so. It is quite difficult to cut up squash so lots of care & a sharp knife is needed. When cooked very carefully separate strands of flesh with a fork.

The seeds can also be roasted for an extra treat. An unusual vegetable that is very difficult to buy in supermarkets.

Indoor Sowing Information

Site:
Well drained, humus rich soil in a sheltered sunny spot out of way of strong winds that can cause damage to the large leaves.
When to Sow:
April to May.
How to Sow: Sow seeds vertically 1cm deep in a small pot. Place in propagator/cover with glass or polythene bag until the seedlings appear (usually 5-8 days). When the seedlings have 2/3 leaves transplant into 2L pots and grow on for a few more weeks. In mid-late May (a week before transplanting) dig a large hole 30cm square for each squash plant (50cm apart, in rows 50cm apart) and fill with lots of well-rotted manure. Make a mound and cloche to warm soil up. Harden off the pumpkin plants for 3-4 days before transplanting out into centre of mound. Keep covered with cloche for a week or so and water well. Can also be grown in greenhouse soil provided it is very fertile and kept moist.
Care:
Feed every 14 days with a potash rich fertiliser. Keep well watered but try not to wet the fruit. Once growing, lift the squash off the soil onto a piece of wood or upturned terracotta pot to allow air to circulate and the squash to ripen.
Harvest: September to October. Pick any remaining fruits before the first frosts. These can be stored in frost-free conditions and can last to Christmas and beyond.

Outdoor Sowing Information

Site:
Well drained & humus rich soil. A sheltered sunny spot out of way of strong winds which causes damage to the large leaves.
When to Sow:
Early June.
How to Sow:
Squash are hungry feeders so to give them a good start outside, dig a hole 30cm square and fill with well rotted manure and mound the soil up and cloche the area a week before direct sowing. Plant 2 seeds into the centre of each mound (1cm deep, spacing 50cm apart, in rows 50cm apart) and cloche again until the seedlings grow. Remove the weaker seedling, and remove cloche a couple of weeks later. Seed will not germinate until the temperature is consistently above 13°C. Keep well watered.
Care:
Feed every 14 days with a potash rich fertiliser. Keep well watered but try not to wet the fruit. Once growing, lift the squash off the soil onto a piece of wood or upturned terracotta pot to allow air to circulate and the squash to ripen.
Harvest: September to October. Pick any remaining fruits before the first frosts. These can be stored in frost-free conditions and can last to Christmas and beyond.
