A distinctively shaped winter squash with a multi-coloured shell, each fruit having its own "cap" or "turban" on top. Introduced in 1869, Turk's Turban has a dry almost-nutty flavour, with fruits growing to 8-12 inches diameter and up to 5 pounds.
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 root-bound, and do not disturb the roots in transplanting. Seed are sown up to one inch deep. Grow 4-5 feet apart.
