It's a little early in the season for your spaghetti squash to be ripe. Wait until your spaghetti squash has reached its? buttery yellow or deep orange coloring. The vine tendril opposite the fruit will be now positioned opposite it and will be brown and shriveled. Another sign of maturity is the squashes' skins hardening. Try pushing with your fingernail. If the skin is hard you can harvest the squash. Carefully cut your squash from its? vines, leaving two inches of stem attached if possible.
