(C. maxima) 95 days 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.

A great squash for baking! Great foliage, the fruit are smooth, thin skinned and rich. Plump seeds look like they would be good for roasted, but I saved all mine for re-planting.

Review:

Of 6 varieties from Baker Creek this one was the great success. Grew and matured an abundance of fruits through a warm spring and cool summer. Was the first vine to die down but by then it had produced a good crop. Easy to peel with a banjo peeler and great tasting. Can recommend for the average, dreadful, British summer.

What are the pros? Huge squash, very attractive a

What are the cons? Vines died quickly

Review:

Our spring turned cool and cloudy just after starting seeds in peat cubes so germination was poor. Got enough to plant two hills and vines went wild, growing into neighbor's trees. Only four fruit set with lots of male blossoms and few female blossoms but fruit grew fast. Three were over 2 feet long, the fourth was 12 inches long. Lots of dry hot weather this summer interspersed with overcast mornings--not ideal weather for garden. Vines died early but squash ripened okay hanging from trees! I'll save seed and try next year again. Excellent sweet flesh that bakes up well with good texture. Froze cooked meat for future pies and quick breads. I'd recommend this variety.

Review:

Very tolerant of both cold and hot temperatures and very vigorous growth. One tip for this variety: North Georgia Candy Roaster has leaves that look different from the other varieties grown along side it. The shape of the leaves are the same but have a different coloration from the others. A light green/grey color forms along the veins of the leaves. Do not let this worry you or misinterpret this as a disease or nutrient deficiency, it is simply a unique quirk of Georgia Candy Roaster and is part of its genetics. Definitely worth a try if you want a unique and delicious winter squash.
