(Cucurbita pepo); an OSSI-pledged variety bred for organic systems; Delicata type; Hand-pollinated; Minimum 20 seeds
A variety from Carol Deppe and Nate France bred for organic systems, Candystick is as its name implies, sweeter than traditional delicatas. The fruits are also larger. Like Thelma Sanders Sweet Potato Squash, this delicata is a repeat variety in our Michigan garden for ease of growing (we trellis it), productivity, manageable fruit size, irresistible sweetness and long-term storability. An added bonus is its thin edible skin makes peeling unnecessary. Candystick Delicata is certain to delight northern gardeners. Consider the delectable Honeynut as well.
Candystick Delicata squash stores well when properly cured.
