What is this magical trick ? Do nothing but wait, as squash only produce their very best flavour after a few weeks of storage

A SCIENTIST'S GUIDE TO AWESOME STUFF TO GROW
GROW FOR FLAVOUR
COPYRIGHT JAMES WONG 2017
Based on an exhaustive review of the most cutting edge scientific research, my new RHS book reveals for the first time the secrets to growing crops for measurablyimproved flavour and nutrition.
Translating geek speak into a set of simple tips & tricks, it shows how anyone can grow maximum flavour with minimum labour.
The exact length of storage does vary noticeably between varieties. Between one month for 'Crown Prince' to up to three months for 'Butternut' types. Never fear though, I have given a table of full listings in my book 'RHS Grow For Flavour"
The only important thing you need to remember is that they be kept cool and dry, in a well ventilated place. A garage or a shed would be perfect. And in just a few weeks you won't believe the difference. Don't believe me? Try it yourself, then apologise to me on twitter.
