(C. mixta) Cushaw-type neck-pumpkins are lavishly produced on rampant vines. Light green, faintly striped fruits have very large, thick, meaty necks. Fruits occasionally reach near 30 lbs! Flesh is light yellow, and very mild. This variety has long been grown among the Mennonite communities in Arkansas. The folks there have been saving their own seed since at least the 1950s, preferring the mild flesh for use in pies, and also enjoying it fried, like summer squash. They also like its disease resistance and productivity. The tasty seeds are a welcome bonus.
