(C. maxima) Here is a unique and colorful native Hopi Indian variety. The 10 lb round fruit have a lovely pale gray rind that is ridged and very hard, making this a great keeping variety. Orange flesh is both sweet and dry; large vines are quite vigorous. A Southwestern heirloom from the Hopi people that has nearly become extinct in recent years.

Review:

We just cooked and ate a Hopi grey from last year! It has been sitting in a crate in the garage for 14-15 months, and it was as good as if it were just harvested. Dense orange flesh, very good squash taste, beautiful squash to grow! If you are in to long term storage, this is the best.

What are the pros? Rare historical variety

What are the cons? vine borer susceptibility high

Review:

This squash is very susceptible to vine borers. For that reason it is nearly impossible in our area to raise it to maturity. I've grown it twice and each time had problems with the borers. I will try again though. I would not recommend it if vine borers are a problem in your area.

What are the pros? Looooooooooooong storer!

What are the cons? n/a

Review:

I grew this variety a couple years ago. Our northern Michigan climate was just barely able to get a mature squash, but did nonetheless. I loved the flavor of these HUGE squash. What I found even better was the way they lasted in storage.....holy cow! I kept one of them for over a year by simply sitting it on a corner table in our kitchen! I likened the flavor to a Butternut, which is my favorite eating winter squash. My wife liked them as much as I did, and that was another big plus.

Review:

I am a winter squash fanatic! I try new varieties every year. This is by far the best winter squash we have ever tried. No exaggerating that it tastes more like a dessert. No need to put anything on it. Everyone that tried it, loved it. It's description on this site is highly underrated! This is a keeper.

What are the pros? Size

What are the cons? Taste

Review:

This squash was fun to grow, it made a lot of fruit and they were nice sized. I didn't like the taste or smell at first (reminded me of cucumber) but I then realized I was eating a immature squash. Will grow again and give it another chance! Also save your seeds from this as they grow nicely the next year and this is a RARE variety.
