Squash: Candystick Dessert Delicata


The mouth-watering name of this squash identifies it as the Delicata strain developed by Oregon plant breeder Carol Deppe, who selected for thick flesh, rich flavor, long storage capacity, and vigorous growth – thank you Carol. Halved and baked, they’re the perfect individual serving size. Thin edible skin too.

Culture: Plant seeds outdoors at around the time of your last expected frost. Full sun, and they enjoy having something to climb on.

Approx. 20 seeds per packet
Grown in Potter Valley, California
Certified Organic by CCOF
Open-pollinated, non-GMO

An Open Source Seed Initiative variety

Great squash selection. Very high germination time and rate. Delivery was fast. Top seller. Will order again and again. Thank you

Product came in a timely manner, seeds look good, just planted the 2 squash today. Packaging was beautiful so far so good, only complaint would be germination percentage not on packages but you had a description of taste or how to use which most didn’t so for that I’m grateful.

Can't wait to try these! Fabulous shop!

I ordered these on April 8th. It's the 30th and I still have not received them. No tracking. Especially when I'm trying to get seeds started, if your going to be way behind, you NEED to update your shipping times so that gardeners can take another route if your times wont work for them.

Arrived on time and can't wait to see how they do next season
