An attractive, high yield Acorn squash, producing on average 5 fruits per plant, Tuffy is unique in the way that the golden yellow skin has dramatic ribbing creating an unusual decorative appearance. It is perfect for baking as the tough rind ensures the shape remains whilst the flesh is deliciously sweet.
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.
