Delicata squash is divine though the long, sprawling vines of full-size winter squash can make it difficult to grow in small garden spaces, raised beds and container gardens. Organic Cornell’s Bush Delicata to the rescue! We’re thrilled to share this seed of Cornell’s Bush Delicata, growing to the marvelously manageable size of a zucchini.
Cornell’s Bush Delicata also has resistance to Powdery Mildew making your harvest that much more abundant.

Cornell’s Bush Delicata is always our first winter squash to ripen, its delectable flesh is surrounded by thin, delectable skin. Enjoy every bite!
