(C. maxima) 95 Days The heirloom sea pumpkin of Chioggia on the coast of Italy. The large turban shaped fruit are deep blue-green. It is one of the most beautiful and unique of all squash. A perfect variety for market gardeners. The rich, sweet flesh is a deep yellow-orange and of good quality, delicious baked or in pies. The fruit weigh about 10 lbs. each and are produced on vigorous vines. Stunning! Pure Italian seed, from one of Italy's best heirloom growers.

What are the pros? delicious and easy growing

Review:

If you let the squash cure at least 30 days after picking, the flavor becomes so delicious you just need bake and eat. It's an outstanding unique flavor , and very dry. A really wonderful , worth it squash, I do not plant any other kind anymore. It is enormous , one season I thought the vines would have grown to Colorado Springs. I think very little if any fertilizer , just good soil and lots of sun and heat. A 10

What are the pros? Stores well, Great Texture

What are the cons? None

Review:

Grew well in hills on shallow soil previously covered by concrete slab (but amended with compost). In Richmond, weather tends to be 70s with some 80s F, so was happy with how sweet they were despite warm winter, cool summer conditions this year. Grew with Kamo Kamo, which did well, and Sweet Meat, which was not prolific, but also tasty. Chiogga my favorite so far for taste, texture, and production.

Review:

I love this squash/pumpkin. It keeps a long time. Tastes great! I use it instead of pumpkin for everything. It has a deep orange color and isn't watery.

What are the pros? Amazing leaves, setting a lot

What are the cons? got knocked by everything

Review:

I did two successive plantings since I am in Hawaii with our endless planting season. Round one these guys started strong, but got powdery mildew and destroyed by vine borers/pickle worm. I planted a T shaped mega mound with a lot of water and manure one month later. The vines are encouraged to reroot every few feet as they are allowed to run down a long manure bed. Now we are talkin'! Leaves two feet across, over 3'high and fruit setting every 18" on these mega vines. Don't give up. This Italian just likes all the good things in life, sun, water, and a lot of food.

Review:

I will add my vote to the chorus of raves for this pumpkin. Very, very intense flavor. And, indeed, they can get large. I am going to try the trick of clipping the long shoots next year because I only got one pumpkin per vine (which is why my pumpkin was large.)
