(C. maxima) This special variety originated in Southern India near Bangalore. It is a winter squash belonging to the Maxima complex along with Hubbard squash, bananas and the turban group. It is grown throughout southern India and has a wide following even in the middle east where it is regularly exported to. The fruits are flat, round and quite attractive, being unique to western eyes in shape; they reach about 2 pounds in weight. The flesh is sweet and delightful. A wonderful squash that we believe we are the first to offer commercially in North America.

Review:

This is a wonderful winter squash that grew among the corn with little care except water. It's flesh is not dense, dark orange and sweet. We like it best grated raw into coleslaw or salads. Raw it was sweet and crunchy, more carrot-like than a winter squash. It was prolific, with so many blossoms that we used many for squash dishes. We still had many of them to last us the winter. The hard shell allowed them to keep for a long time (until they froze in the garage). We feed the frozen ones to the sheep, goats, and chickens.
