(C. maxima) 90-100 days A large, gorgeous peach-colored squash from 'down under' that has extra-thick, orange flesh that's of excellent quality; perfect for pies and baking. The 15-lb. fruit keep for a long period. Very rare Australian heirloom. So beautiful and attractive.

Review:

Punkin, I would use them like a pumpkin for the most part. Since many have not had good luck keeping these a long time, you could puree some and freeze them, and you could cube some to use as a side dish.

This squash took over my garden with beautiful fruits. Ripened early. The flavor is amazing as is the texture. I will be growing it next year also.

Review:

I have grown this for many years and I love it's versatility. It's beautiful and tasty. It's large size feeds my whole family with leftovers to spare. I use it in soup, pies, desserts or just with butter & salt. The only drawback is a short shelf-life so I keep a close eye on it and cook the rest of them up and freeze them. It makes for quick, handy side dishes.

Review:

Due to a family emergency, I threw these in the ground in early March, thinned them to one per hill, and then left them to their own devices (irrigated) while I went overseas. I came back in mid-June to 4-lb squash ready to pick. They have a rich, wonderful flavor and an attractive, blocky shape and interesting color. The vines did suddenly die completely in late June; I'm not sure if that was the heat or the fact that I had to do some big-scale vine moving. Given the speed with which they grew and fruited, I stuck down more seeds at the end of June and already have sturdy young plants spreading out. I hope to see more by October!
