Terrific holding ability
Days to Maturity: 80 from direct sow
The savory, ultra-healthy alternative to pasta, spaghetti squash has always had just one disadvantage: unlike the real thing, you can’t eat the leftovers cold for breakfast. Now Small Wonder hybrid has come along to solve that problem and get rid of the guilt spaghetti squash lovers have felt about not being able to eat an entire monster-sized squash. Small Wonder comes in “single serving” size, with just enough yummy strands to satisfy one or two hungry people. Sounds odd, but it’s true—you’ll actually get more fruit from this smaller variety, because you needn’t waste a single savory strand.
Small Wonder hybrid is an attractive golden orange oval with a pleasantly chunky shape and creamy yellow flesh. It is well “stranded”—just slice it in half, steam, and fluff up the “noodles” for a delicious dinner. Just like its pasta counterpart, spaghetti squash is yummy with tomato- and cream-based sauces, as well as on its own with a little salt and butter or a squeeze of lemon juice. What a healthy, flavorful alternative to pasta.
This plant reaches 4 to 6 feet long, with a vining habit and superior productivity. Plan on a summerlong feast of delicious spaghetti squash with Small Wonder—and if you can’t eat it all at once, don’t worry. Small Wonder has some of the best after-harvest holding ability of any squash we’ve seen.
Like all squash, Small Wonder grows best in full sunshine and rich, well-drained soil. Pick the fruit when it’s 5 or 6 inches long and weighs about 3 pounds.
