NEW! (C. maxima) 95 days Lots of interesting diversity in this landrace-type squash—shapes range from round to elongated to hubbard-type. Weights are more uniform, running mainly around 5 to 8 pounds. Color is usually salmon-pink to buff, with an occasional green fruit. The variety originated when three Indian tribes, the Hidatsa, Arikara and Mandan, were living in close proximity for protection, near the confluence of the Missouri and Knife Rivers. This is an excellent keeper growing on very vigorous vines. Superb flavor with a unique sweetness.

Review:

I was excited to try these... then all of a sudden, POOF! Gone from BCHS. I sure hope they bring these back... I see they have a Chihuahua landrace type but I'd rather go for Knife River as I'm a northern grower.

Review:

I planted one of these in my hoop house in March and 2 more vines in June. Each vine produced about 3 5lb squash in various shapes and colors. The squash are less dense than a butternut and easier to cut for cooking. The flesh was sweet and very delicate tasting and had a cooked sweet-potato consistency. I can't wait to make pies with this squash!

Review:

I planted the Knife River squash seeds among my corn in my Three Sisters garden, with circles that were dug out and filled with manure. The squash plants are currently bearing large light beige squashes, some shaped like a pumpkin, some like a hubbard squash, and about the same size. The vines are over 20' long, with about 2-3 squashes on each one. I would say that many of them will tip the scales over ten pounds. These will go on display at a Native American powwow this fall, and a nice one will be used to hold soup for the festivities. I will definitely be growing these again next year. We had a lot of high heat and then torrential rains in the Northeast, and they are the only squashes that really did well. I believe that they will be very nice winter keepers, also.
