Winter Squash (Potato varieties)

Billed as ‘Low in calories’, ‘A good source of iron and potassium’ and ‘A great alternative to potatoes’.

Potting on the seeds of a new Winter Squash, varieties Mashed Potatoes and Baked Potatoes. Available from Thompson and Morgan these new squash are described as ‘low in carbs and high in fibre. Up to 80% fewer calories and 75% less carbohydrates than potato.” Really looking forward to try these. There is still time to sow both varieties.

These plants were sown on April 28, transplanted May 22 into individual pots.

Will be ready to harvest in August, September, October.
