90-100 days (C. maxima) 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:

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!

Review:

We are very excited about this variety. We had a cool pacific NW summer and planted them late, but still got a very respectable yield from the plants. Other pumpkins had totally succumbed to powdery mildew and yet these kept on going. We were trying to maximize their "sugaring up" phase and had a frost that was a bit harder than expected--this burned the one side of them but we sent them out to customers anyway, all of whom had great things to say about the dark orange, rich, sweet flesh. They are also very attractive. We have better hopes of maintaining some as "keepers" next year if they don't get frosted--one that wasn't damaged is still here in the office with me and looks fine--Feb 3! Thank you Baker for offering this rare gem!

Review:

Grew this first time last year. Loved the look of it and straight off the plot had a good flavor. However it did not store well for me.

Review:

We grew this variety in z5a (altho 2010 was one of Colorado's hottest summers). What a fantastic squash! There is no stringy-ness to the pulp. It is everything a culinary pumpkin should be. The vines are long - easily reaching 20 feet. Our yield was 4 pumpkins/vine. Even the small ones that couldn't reach full size in our short growing season have excellent color, flavor and texture. Difficult to find a better culinary pumpkin. Easy to see why this seed has been preserved through the years.
