How To Grow Squash From Seed: Green Hokkaido is best started indoors. Using small pots, sow 1 seed in each pot. After the seedlings have established, and developed their third set of leaves, they are ready to be transplanted to their final spot in the garden.

Make sure all risk of frost has passed before transplanting to the garden. Give each plant 60cm of space.

The fruit will grow to be a diameter of roughly 15cm, and weigh 1.0 - 1.5kgs. Harvest all of the fruit before the first Autumn frost. Green Hokkaido Squash will store for 3-4 months after harvesting.
