Winter Squash 'Fictor'

Fictor has become a standard variety for many growers. Fictor is quite vigorous and produces a large number of fruits with the preferred weight of 1.0 kg. The fruits are dark orange-red, shiny and have a good storage capacity. In contrary to Solor, Fictor is not an open pollinated variety, but a cross of incomplete inbred and somewhat related parental lines. FIC (Family Inter-Cross) is a new breeding concept of the Bolster. In order to get the best results, we advise sowing Solor and Fictor together using a ratio of 2:1. Both varieties are flexible growers, producing more fruits when more space is available. To avoid cold damage, the fruits should be stored at a temperature of at least 8° c.
