It is a climbing and creeping plant that grows in warm to moderate climates. While the plant resembles a pumpkin in the way it climbs, the fruits themselves are more akin to zucchini than to pumpkins. The fruits are usually thin and long-ranging from a few inches to three feet.

Here is how you can plant the seeds in easy steps.

Since the squash needs support to climb, you should pick a spot in the garden close to the fence or a trellis.

Use a spade to dig up the soil and loosen it. Till the topsoil well.

Add organic compost or aged manure to enrich the soil. Most veggies love fertile soil.

About two weeks after the last frost in your area, plant the seeds in the tilled soil. The soil should be about 15 degrees celcius to ensure the germination of the seeds.

Dig a small hole about an 2.5 cm deep and throw in one seed, then cover with loose soil.

Space the seeds about 12 inches apart to give them enough room to grow.

Water the soil thoroughly to help the seeds settle.

Add a thin layer of fertilizer to give the seedlings a good start.

Cover the rows of squash with mulch to fight off weed growth. Make sure the mulch doesn’t cover the plants.

Keep the soil moist while the plants are still growing. You can irrigate it once a week.

Cool areas: October to December.

Temperate regions sow from September to January.

Subtropical regions sow from July to March.
