Description

Harvested from the gardens at Monticello.
Canada Crookneck Squash has curved, bottle-shaped, thin-skinned fruits up to 12" long with nutty and sweet-flavored flesh.  It is said to have originated from the Iroquois Nations and was first offered commercially in the 1830s.  In Field and Garden Vegetables of America (1863) Fearing Burr wrote: "The Canada is unquestionably the best of the Crooknecked sorts".

Direct sow seeds in hills or rows after the last spring frost; for hills, sow 6-8 seeds per 18"-wide hill, then thin to the best 3 plants per hill.  Winter Squash prefer moist but well-drained, fertile soil.  Harvest as the skin hardens and the leaves die back.  Approximately 15 seeds per packet.
