Spahetti sqush, when cooked, looks like spaghetti and is popular with folks trying to avoid gluten. It's hard like a pumpkin/watermelon when grown. Cut it in half and pop it in the oven for approx 40ish minutes on 175C. Let it cool, scoop out the seeds then fork out the flesh. You can boil it too. Microwave if you must.


Spaghetti squash grows like the other members of its family, pumpkin, zucchini and cucumber, by scrambling along the ground and demanding space.


You can store them as you do pumpkins in a cool, dark place.

  • Grow in full sun in fertile well drained soil. Mulch heavily and water regularly (Heavy bearers are thirsty!!).

    Avoid overhead watering as wet leaves promote powdery mildew.
