Little dipper weights in at about 2lbs per fruit, the right size for small family dinner or batch of soup. Fruit are smooth and have a buff exterior and bright orange interior. Little Dipper has a nutty flavour and a dense, small seed cavity. Plants are vigorous with long, productive vines.  

Growing Tips

Squash, like pumpkins, thrive in well-drained soil that has been enriched with compost. Plant seed directly in the garden once all risk of frost has passed and the soil has warmed to 21 degrees Celsius. Can be grown in rows with the seed planted 2cm (3/4-1") deep and 3-4 seeds per foot. Rows should be spaced 180cm (72") apart and the seedlings thinned to 45-60cm (18-24") one they have sprouted and are growing well. To plant in hills, sow 5-6 seeds per hill, thinning to 3 seedlings/mound. Space 180cm (72") apart). Harvest before the  heavy frosts by cutting the vine 15cm (6") from the fruit.
