(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.

What are the pros? Can take hot weather

What are the cons? none at this time

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.

Review:

This squash was fun to grow and to eat. Grew well here in north Florida. Just a few vine borers to dig out. My five year old had a blast watching the fruits get bigger. Two vines have produced 6 fruits. I'm sure they could have grown more, but I kept the vines compact as the summer heat set in. Tastes like butternut. The space the plants took up was worth it. I planted them in mid February and they took it from there with just some watering when the rain missed us.

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
