(C. maxima) 95-100 days Possibly our most beautiful heirloom squash. This flattened, round 10-15 lb fruit has a gorgeous salmon-peach colored skin that is covered with large warts! The sweet orange flesh is used in France for soups and also can be baked. We are delighted to offer this French heirloom.

What are the pros? a great suprise

What are the cons? none

Review:

This grew as a suprise after some escaped chickens ate loads of my seedlings. It is the one I wanted to grow most out of everything.It started late in our season but has produced some stunning squash.Once it started growing it needed very little attention .So pretty. .

What are the pros? Aroma, Taste, Size and Color

What are the cons? Seed Selection

Review:

I was curious to grow a few "exotic" squash varieties from other regions. Galeux D'Eysines fit right into the mold especially after hearing that these were sourced from France. First, I opened the seed packet to sort the seeds for viability and health out of the starting gate. I was shocked to find many cracked seeds, small seeds and even empty ones. Out of the roughly 32 seeds I ended up with 5 larger, healthier, undamaged ones that all germinated. Do not let that discourage you from getting this variety because the reasoning behind my sorting is that our season lasts about 85-95 days if we're lucky and plants can take a light frost or upper 30s then we expand to 100-115 days. These guys took 36 degree temperatures like champions. I was limited to 1 squash per vine; however, ended up with a weight range between 9.5lbs and 19.75lbs. They are not uniform squash so expect inconsistencies in ripe fruit. Younger fruit smell and taste kind of like bananas and mature squash, muskmelon.

What are the pros? Strong in heat

What are the cons? Fragile

Review:

Only tried this in the 5 month drought of 2016. May be from southern France as it had no issue with intense heat and dry. Germinated stronger than competators (Luxury, Sweetmeat, and Beppo). Could be season stress but trunk was completely hollowed out at the ground, yet had no effect on the growth. may be because it drops sharp roots along the vine. I suspect the hollowing stem-rot, and I hear the warting, are a result of the high sugar content. Yet with little rain, it ran 12ft or more and produced 5-7 modest fruit, about 12in in diameter. As season was hard, some were pale, and I believe the natural flesh is rich orange. There was mild frost, but before anything severe, two ripe, picked fruits had collapsed into mush. Suspect not enough maturity, hardening off, but still indicates it's very fragile, preferring Mediterranian heat and no frost. Distinctive appearance remarked on by the neighbors. Recommend but know its limitations.

What are the pros? grow fast

What are the cons? Squash Bugs love'em

Review:

Nice big plants but they are dying off fast. They seem have to little resistance to our local squash bugs here in N Utah. All our other cucuribits are so far ok and historically we have minimal squash plants die due to squash bugs.

What are the pros? Beautiful and Tasty!

What are the cons? Bugs their bottoms... ;P

Review:

This squash... If you want a very unique pumpkin that both spooks and delights all who see it and is also delicious, this is the one! Germination was 100% and the plants were very healthy and gave me tons of pumpkins, all different from each other, even though I neglected them a bunch! Let your pumpkins mature so they develop the warts and bumps! Very cool! The bugs do try to drill holes through the bottom, so rotate the squash sometimes until it's ripe, or place it in a bowl or something that lifts it off the dirt until ready for harvest. Made pumpkin pie with this, and it turned out fantastic! Made pumpkin curry and also have put it in a soup. I have several I need to process, but they're still holding on. Planted them in early spring and they were ready in August, so they've been sitting around (outside and inside) and holding up very well. Only a few rotted, because of the bugs drilling holes in their bottoms. Try this one!!!
