(C. maxima) Here is a smaller strain of Candy Roaster from northern Georgia. This type of squash is famous among the people of the Southeast. Pink, banana-shaped fruit have a blue tip and weigh around 10 lbs. Delicious, smooth orange flesh is perfect baked, fried and makes great pies; hard to find and quite beautiful.

Review:

I had about 4 of these plants. They were very productive and grew fast. I trellised them and occasionally the squash fell off the vine. They tasted great before they were ripe. The Candy Roaster held up to squash bugs, 100 degree plus heat. I love to bake the Candy Roaster then eat it like mashed potato. With this squash you dont need to put anything on it for flavor... it has it all! I canned some and it held up ok. I have also frozen the puree for later eating. I will be growing more of these!

Review:

this was my first year growing these but absolutely not the last. when growing these make sure you give them PLENTY of room and start them early. what can i say about these well lets start with the great flavor we used what we got for making pumpkin rolls and next year i hope to have some for just eating on the table also. another thing i want to do is trying a few on a trellis i think hey might do well this way and take up less room on the ground

I planted this variety for the first time this year. The plants are very hardy, and the squash are large. We got about 30 squash from 6 plants.

Review:

I grew this squash for the first time in 2010, my most prolific winter squash by far. The taste is sweetish, and good. Saved the seeds and will grow again next year. Highly recommended.

Review:

The Candy Roaster is one of the best tasting varieties we have grown. Great in pies, baked, or baby food. Popular amoung farm market customers. Hardy vines. Some variability in fruit size and numbers. Attractive pinkish/orange color with dark ends.
