Description How to Grow More Info Delivery
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’).

Height Up to 45cm (18in)
Spread Up to 200cm (79in)

Water well and make sure it does not become too dry. It will need a framework to grow and spread as it can reach 1.8m (70”). As it reaches this size pinch out the triffid-like growth tips.

Keep squashes well watered throughout the season. Feed and mulch regularly. Prefers well drained, moist, rich soil in full sun. Also grows well in cooler climates.

As versatile as a potato - use roasted, baked, mashed or steamed and enjoy the tasty and attractive orange flesh.
