Sweet Dumpling for fruits with delicious, light-golden flesh and fine, sweet texture when baked.

Shaped like small, flat-topped acorn squash. Sweet Dumpling produces eight to ten little fruits per plant. Sweet as honey and small like a dumpling.

Sow seed directly into the garden. Plant in the sunny location in rich, well-drained soil. Keep fairly well watered & fertilize monthly, but avoid constant overwatering & continual use of high-nitrogen fertilizers. An outstanding easy to grow squash.
