(C. maxima) 105 days 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.

Review:

Unfortunately, this plant didn't do well for me this year. We had a horrible summer, after planting out I had to quickly get them back in as it unseasonably snowed and we had very low temperatures for a few days. It took the plants a long time to recover again, with continuing bad weather I can't blame the plants just the cold, rain and wind. Definitely try again next year.

What are the pros? Always produces something

What are the cons? May only produce just 1 squash

Review:

Scrumptious, different, and produces at least one fruit. My first attempt was fruitful, got five squash from one vine. If you got nothing from your plant, something's wrong.

Review:

Unlike some reviewers our plants produced a lot of squash! Planted three plants and produced 11 squash ranging from 15" to 24" long. Average diameter is at least 10". Haven't cooked or eaten any yet but am looking forward to trying it out & seeing how long they will last for winter storage.

Review:

I grew these for the first time in the Denver, CO area this summer in my community garden plots. I grew them on 6 foot trellises. The plants were beautiful and healthy up until late summer when I had to start battling Powdery Mildew, which I have to do with ALL my squash plants at about that time in my area. I got 3 or 4 squash per plant ( more mid to late summer were started, but no time to mature before frost so we used them like summer squash). I got comments from dozens of people who were fascinated by their large (over a foot and a half long) salmon pink fruits hanging down from the trellises. We picked them in October and so far, in mid December, they are holding up beautifully in our basement. They have an awesome flavor baked in casseroles and soups or all by themselves. They don't produce as much as summer squash, but their size makes up for it and they seem to keep really well so far. Again, they have been a LOT of fun to grow and eat!
