(C. moschata) Large, oblong-butternut shaped fruit can weigh 20-35 lbs. The flesh is bright orange; flavor is superbly rich and very sweet. The skin is deep green, turning tan in storage. These are attractive squash and great for areas with warm, long seasons. A good heirloom for home or market growers. A beautiful very old Italian heirloom that was listed in America by Fearing Burr in 1863; very rare in the USA.
