Yield and labor saving ability of short-internode squash (Cucurbita maxima Duch. var. Tsurunashiyakko)



Yield and labor saving ability of short-internode squash (Cucurbita maxima Duch. var. Tsurunashiyakko)



Horticultural Research Japan 3(3): 287-290



Yielding and labour saving ability of a short-internode variety of squash (Cucurbita maxima 'Tsurunashiyakko') was compared with the vining-type variety 'Ebisu'. The yield of 'Tsurunashiyakko' increased as the row width was decreased from 2.0 m to 1.0 m (plant populations from 100 to 200 plants per are), while average fruit weight declined adversely. As a result, a row width of 1.5 m seemed to be appropriate for the optimum production of 'Tsurunashiyakko'.
