When cooked the flesh becomes noodle-like. Asian cuisines use it in soups and is a good substitute for the shark fin in shark fin soup. In Asia, it is implied that eating this melon will help a diabetic condition. Prepare fertile, well-drained soil. Sow seeds in late spring/ early summer after the last frost in a warm, sunny location. Seeds will rot if the soil is too wet or cold. Hill planting: Form soil into a 1' diameter mound 3-4" tall. Space mounds 4-6' apart. On each mound plant 1-2 seeds. Row planting: See spacing info in chart. Keep soil moist. Fertilize as needed. Hand pollination may be necessary. The vine can be trained to climb a vertical support for better air circulation and ease of harvest or left to sprawl on the ground. After harvest, winter squash should be left in the sun for a few days to cure before storing. Cut squash and remove seeds and pulp. Bake or steam for 30-45 minutes. Using a fork, remove the flesh and flake into strands. Add the noodle-like strands to your soup.
