Main Characteristics: White squash, also known as winter squash, belongs to the Cucurbita genus. It is characterized by its thick and hard skin, with shades that vary from white to light green. Its pulp is sweet and firm, ideal for preparing roast dishes, soups and purees.

Historical Background: White pumpkin has a long history of cultivation, with evidence of its presence in various cultures over the centuries. Originally from America, it was a staple food for indigenous populations and spread to other regions of the world with the arrival of European explorers.


Planting Time to Harvest: Planting time for white squash varies depending on the region and local climate. It is usually planted in spring after the risk of frost has passed. The period from sowing to harvest can extend from 80 to 120 days, depending on the variety.


Soil: White squash thrives in well-drained soil rich in organic matter. Prefers slightly acidic to neutral soils. It is essential to avoid compact soils that retain water, as this could lead to root diseases.


Climate and Temperature:
This pumpkin variety adapts to warm and temperate climates. The optimal temperature for its growth ranges between 18 and 27 degrees Celsius. Avoid prolonged exposure to extreme temperatures, as this may affect their development.


Most Recommended Sowing Method: It is recommended to sow the seeds directly into the ground after the risk of frost has passed. The spaced row planting method allows for better access to the crop for care and harvest.

Cultivation: Cultivation of white squash requires proper weed management and sufficient spacing between plants to allow good development. Providing supports for heavier branches is advisable to prevent them from breaking.


Sowing and Germination Depth:
Sow the seeds at a depth of approximately 2.5 cm. Germination usually occurs within one to two weeks, depending on soil conditions and ambient temperature.


Watering: Regular watering is essential for healthy white squash development. Keep the soil evenly moist, avoiding waterlogging that can lead to fungal diseases.


Harvesting: Harvesting is done when the skin of the pumpkin has reached a deep white or cream color, and your fingernail cannot easily penetrate the skin. Use scissors or sharp knives to cut the fruits, leaving a small stem. Store in a fresh and dry place.
