(C. maxima) 90-100 days A lovely little squash that was developed in 1953 by the U of NH; small, Hubbard-shaped fruit weigh around 6 lbs and have fine-grained, yellow-gold flesh that is sweet and of excellent quality. A great variety for marketing or for small households. Semi-bush vines are easier to handle.

What are the pros? Beautiful when healthy.

What are the cons? Susceptible to disease.

Review:

I tried growing 3 of these guys in a pot - maybe that's where I first went wrong - maybe there were too many in the pot. However, they were all flourishing with a sphagnum/vermiculite mix. They grew huge, with lovely, lush green leaves. To start with, I had 4 separate female flowers on the 3 different plants... but they all ended up dying and not being pollinated because I had no male flowers blooming at the same time. The next flush of growth was the male flowers. They were lovely, striking, vigorous. However, downy AND powdery mildew began to take my plants, even after I'd treated them for blossom end rot with a spritz of antacid and some good, healthy compost and fertilizer. No female flowers bloomed in a month. I've not received a single fruit from any of these plants. Maybe I'll try in the spring to do one plant per pot, but I'm utterly disappointed. Right now I'm seeing if anything happens after I hard pruned the disease bits. I'm not going to hold my breath, though.

Review:

It's now mid September and out of about 10 plants one has survived the vine borer attacks and is producing fruit. And growing extremely vigorously! I will definitely try this variety again next year, just being more watchful of the vine borers. Hoping I can get a couple of squash off the one plant.

Review:

This is an excellent producer of small 2-5lb squash perfect if you are a market grower that has alot of small family customers or if you have only 1-2 people in the household. Our best selling squash of the 2010 season of the 14 variaties of winter and summer squash we grow. Thanks Baker Creek for the seeds.
