This is just a little demonstration. I make no claim that this would pass laboratory muster, but I thought you'd all be interested in these results. Enjoy!
This germination test was conducted using Delicata squash seeds from a fruit too far gone to eat, but not yet molded on the inside. Delicata is a special kind of squash that you can eat with the skin on; and that sautes up nicely in short order. The flavor is not very different from butternut - and it is one of my favorites!
While I had been warned that produce you get from the store usually offers poor results in terms of germination, I was determined to get some of these little beauties from our yard this year.
That's it for now! I'll give you an update as the season progresses to let you know how it turns out.
