105 days (C. maxima) Large, pink, banana-shaped fruit can weigh 10-40 lbs. This variety is over 100 years old. We have grown this squash for many years. Fine flavored, dry, sweet, orange flesh that is superbly fine tasting, one of my favorites. Popular on the West Coast; large yields.

What are the pros? Survived borers n squash bugs

What are the cons? Takes over the garden

Review:

I wish I had grown this earlier. So easy to grow, and survived a pretty hard pest load thanks to a really lush past two growing seasons and warm temps here in Georgia Zone 7b. Prolific production, my first fruit was a 35 pound monster. Despite it's size, the long slender fruit is easy to process. It's a top tier winter squash in taste and texture. The flesh is a gorgeous orange. Easily substituted for sweet potatoes and pumpkin in desserts or baked goods. Next year this may be the only variety I grow. Needs lots of room. I dug a 3 foot deep 4x6 hole and filled it with tons of soil and manure (we have clay here in Georgia) and this worked great! Held rain water a little longer and provided plenty of nutrition. Borers were a real problem at first, but if you have good soil where the vines can set roots down, it recovers beautifully with no loss of fruit as long as you get the borers out. First time I've gotten any winter squash to harvest. Gotta love growing in Georgia!

Review:

I grew up eating this and was sad to see it's nowhere to be found or heard of here in Georgia. Here are my notes for next year:1. Taste was bland straight out of the garden; it's a good variety to cure. 2. They rot from the outside in so don't be put off by even a giant black rotting section. The squash skin will scar any breaks or bug attacks3. Leaf droop cured with watering means it is root bound -- deeper square foot garden hill, next time. No more than 1 per 9sqft...best to use a bottomless bed. Needs full sun.4. Very rich planting mix with supplements for the incredible growth. 5. Squash bugs and vine borers are a problem. Companion plant nasturtiums, a potted habanero, marigolds and onion. Regular squishing rounds. A very dilute mix of water, soap, and a drop of tea tree in a spray bottle seemed to help repel the bugs.6. Ground plant no earlier than 2 weeks after the last frost; won't grow well until it's warm anyway. 7. Try a second round of plants the end of June/July 1st with regular bug checks. (August planting doesn't appear promising-- cooled off too much and the growth is weak.)
