100 days — Originally from Australia, 'Jarrahdale' is similar to 'Sweet Meat' winter squash. Its vines produce fruit that are wider than they are tall, deeply ribbed, and range in weight from ten to twelve pounds each, but can reach twenty. The rinds are hard and blue-grey in color with fine-grained, dry, sweet, nearly stringless flesh that is orange-yellow in color and excellent for baking or in pies.

Planting Instructions: Choose a location that has warm, well-drained and fertile soil. Work in plenty of organic matter and mulch to conserve moisture, as squash are heavy water consumers.
