Winter Squash 'Solor'

Solor is a vining, open pollinated variety comparable to the standard variety Uchiki Kuri, but it flowers 7-10 days earlier. The size of the orange-red fruits is clearly more uniform (about 1.0 kg) and this variety has a good storage capacity. 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.
