DESCRIPTION

90 days. Super healthy alternative to pasta! 4-6' vines produce 4-5 medium-sized, 8-10"L, 3-5 lb oblong fruit. Ivory skin turns pale yellow at maturity. Bake like squash or boil whole fruit for 20-30 minutes, remove spaghetti-like flesh with fork, season with spaghetti sauce or salt and butter. Can be stored several months in a cool, dry place.

CLASSIFICATIONS
OPEN POLLINATED

Pollination occurs by insect, bird, wind, humans, or other natural mechanisms. Because there are no restrictions on the flow of pollen between individuals, open-pollinated plants are more genetically diverse. However, as long as pollen is not shared between different varieties within the same species, then the seed produced will remain true-to-type year after year.

HEIRLOOM

This variety has a history of being passed down within a family or community, similar to the generational sharing of certain items like jewelry or furniture.
