Like all squash plants, the Sweet Dumpling variety will be damaged by frost, so it is best to either sow the squash seeds directly in the ground once the soil temperature has reached about 70 degrees or start the squash plants indoors up to 1 month prior to your last frost date. When deciding on which method to choose, consider the length of your frost-free growing season and the fact that Sweet Dumpling squash seeds reach maturity after approximately 110 days.\u003c\/p\u003e \n\u003cbr\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003eVarious Uses for Sweet Dumpling Squash:\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eSweet Dumpling squash is a small delicata squash variety grown for its delicious orange flesh that tastes a bit like sweet potato.
