Harvesting winter squash after a light frost will give you a sweeter squash but it will also give you a squash that won’t store as well. When cutting the squash off the plant, leave a 2-4 cm stem on the squash to prolong storage. Allow the squash to cure by laying it out in a sunny spot for a week. Curing will harden the skin so that the squash will store better.
