When cooked, the flesh of this Chinese vegetable (actually a winter squash), falls away from the fruit in ribbons and strands, just like spaghetti for which it makes a perfect substitute in countless cooking roles. It contains folic acid, vitamin A and beta carotene.
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.
