Squash Honeyboat. Versatile and with a wonderful flavour, Squash ‘Honeyboat’ is one of the sweetest available and can be used in a broad variety of ways. Enjoy fresh harvests of large tan-coloured fruits with orange flesh throughout the autumn months to bake in the skin, steam, mash, roast or simmer into a lovely silky soup. The green markings fade when the fruits become ripe so you know exactly the right time to harvest, a long storage life after harvesting means you can also enjoy these useful squashes through the winter months too. Ripens to around 15-20cm (6-8”) in length and 500-600g (1lbs) in weight. The skin is edible but best peeled if steaming, mashing or using to make soup.
Height: 45cm (18”). Spread: 2m (6’).

How to sow
Sow seeds April to June. Sow seed 2cm (3/4”) deep in 7.5cm (3”) pots in good free draining, damp seed compost. Place in a propagator at 21-25C (70-77F) or sealed container in a polythene bag until after germination. Can also be sown direct outdoors once the soil has warmed. Do not sow in cold soils. Sow two seeds every 1.2m (4’) and thin out to the best seedling. Ideally grow under cloches until the plant is established. Gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions for a few days before planting out after all risk of frost has passed 1.2m (4’) apart.
