Honey Bear F1 Squash Seeds
Honey Bear Acorn squash is a compact, miniature acorn squash that packs a lot of flavor into 4" round, mini-acorn fruits. Each cultivar produces from three to five plants per vine, each of which taste better than most other acorn squash on the market. Unlike many winter squash plants, the Honey Bear is fairly compact and bushy, and spreading to a maximum of 4-5’.
The fruits are ready to eat at about 1lb. and each one provides about 2 servings exactly (one in each half). It does take a long time to mature—100 days or so—but the sweet, fleshy taste makes this acorn squash well worth the wait. And since it’s resistant to powdery mildew, it can keep going all summer long without giving in to the heat.
