Lakota Squash

(C. maxima) 85-105 days This colorful variety was grown by the Lakota Sioux. It is pear-shaped, flame-red with green streaks at the bottom. So attractive for fall decorations. The flesh is fine-grained and sweet with a great nutty taste. A wonderful squash that ranks among the most beautiful.

What are the pros? Abundant even in hot climates

What are the cons? Spreads a LOT

Review:

We grew the Lakota squash and sold many of them at market. Being in Texas, summers are very hot and dry, so we do have to water daily. Very prolific and very HUGE plants. They really spread all over the garden. Beautiful and tasty!

What are the pros? pretty

What are the cons? poor yield, no heat tolerance

Review:

I've lived and gardened in the Deep South (Alabama, Georgia, now South Carolina) for almost 30 years, and I've learned some crops simply "don't do." This year, we had below average rainfall and 7 days in June with temperatures of 100 or above. From the Lakota, only 3 squash. Sad. In case you're thinking the heat was too much for winter squash, the butternut (also from Baker Creek) yielded 12 squash before it died. If you're a hot-weather planter, be warned.

Too susceptible to wilt

What are the pros? Very pretty squash and tasty

What are the cons? Very susceptible to wilt

Review:

Three out of four plants died from wilt but none of the other 15 squash plants of other varieties succumbed. There was a light infestation by cucumber beetle that spread the wilt. I wouldn't recommend this for an organic garden as it is hard to control squash bugs on such a large plant using organic methods. The squash is very pretty and tasty.
