A French Heirloom winter squash with a delicate chestnut flavour. Its French name in fact derives from potiron (pumpkin) and marron (chestnut). Apparently, the longer it is stored the higher its sugar and vitamins increase. (AKA Hokkaido Squash).
Very heavy feeders, they need soil heavily amended with manure, compost, or other source of lots of nutrients. Sow in place in full sun after last frost; or start a couple weeks earlier indoors, but never let squash transplants become rootbound, and do not disturb the roots in transplanting. Seed are sown up to one inch deep. Grow 4-5 feet apart.
