(C. moschata) 120 days These gorgeous, big flat pumpkins are shaped like a big wheel of cheese, and are heavily lobed and ribbed. The skin is a beautiful, rich brown color when ripe. The flesh is deep orange, thick and very fine flavored, fruit grow to 20 lbs. each. This is a traditional variety from southern France and makes a great variety for fall markets. Pure European seeds. Packets only this year.

What are the pros? A wonderful tasting pumpkin

What are the cons? Poor production

Review:

We love the taste of this pumpkin but had the same problem as the Rogosa, the pollinated fruit rotted after pollination when the fruit was about one fourth of it's full mature size. We only got 2 squash from three plants. We will try growing it again next year.

What are the pros? BEAUTIFUL!

What are the cons? Hard to find in the patch!

Review:

I have been growing these pumpkins for 4 years. They are the most beautiful, heavy, delicious pumpkins you can grow. (You can eat them raw! It's like a spicy-smelling, mild canteloupe and one will last for weeks) We planted a field of them this year and only watered them in. We left the crop to the rain, this year was so viciously dry that we could not water all of July and August (we water our crops with rain water). These pumpkin plants grew big and green, despite having NO water for 2 months. We don't have any kind of pest protection, so we did lose 23 of them to woodchucks, deer and rabbits. For only planting 48 seeds and not watering, we ended up with 19 perfect 30 lb. pumpkins. That means we got at least 1 pumpkin from at least 42/48 seeds. They are a little tricky to spot in the field (dark green). They are just as delicious after keeping for 9 months as they are fresh. I will never not grow these gorgeous heirlooms.

Grown in Straw Bales
Easy to Grow 4.0

What are the pros? Appearance

What are the cons? not resistant to Alternaria

Review:

I grew these Moschata species varieties due to its resistance to squash vine borers. Grown were Musquee Du Provence, Butternut, and an F1 Hybrid 'Argonaut.' I planted in well prepared straw bales. The bales were seasoned for 3 months, then the top was clawed open 6" deep and a seed starting mix added. One bale (4 seeds) Musquee du Provence, 2 bales (8 seeds) Butternut, 2 bales (8 seeds) Argonaut. All were kept well watered and fertilized with 10-10-10. The Butternut produced 10 mid sized (avg 1.5 - 2 lb), pale tan squash. These harvested the earliest. The Argonaut produced 5 huge dark orange squash averaging 20 lbs. These ripened completely and were harvested. The Musquee is the latest, 4 are on the vines in various stages of color and size. Estimate 1@ 35lbs, 2@ 20lbs, 1@ 10lbs.. No squash vine borers. Striped Cucumber beetles were kept under control with yellow dishes filled with water and liquid dish soap. All required anti-fungal spraying for Alternaria fungus.

What are the pros? firm flesh, borer resistance

What are the cons? long season

Review:

This is one of the best squashes I've grown, large and nice firm orange flesh, and not bothered by vine borers. 120 days is pushing it for Wisconsin though so you may not get a lot of them. This year we had a freak late frost that killed the first seedlings. The replants were slow to start so it looks like I'm only getting one this year. Worth it anyway and will grow again.

BEST SQUASH FOR TEXAS BUGS
Easy to Grow 5.0
EarlyMaturity 4.0
 

What are the pros? GREAT KEEPER & HARD VINES

What are the cons? Long time to maturity

Review:

This squash is sold in Texas grocery stores as "Fairytale Squash"! I grew my first plants from harvested seeds from a squash bought at Fiesta. It was most prolific growing on bamboo tunnel trellis (held together with plastic zip ties) that stretches from one raised bed to the next! Growing any type of SQUASH in TEXAS is a challenge - mainly due to squash bugs & Vine Borer Moths laying eggs on squash vines, where the larvae eat & can destroy a squash vine in days! WOOD ASH is a successful deterrent to squash bugs, when sprinkled around the base of the plants. They won't venture near. You can reapply as needed. But, Vine Borers? They are a challenge. The Fairytale Squash has hard vines & with small scissors, you can cut into the vine to remove the larva. I usually stuff the wound with some moist dirt & it heals easily & will continue to grow. Since squash are heavy feeders, I work uncomposted horse manure into the soil before planting & plant 5 seeds/hill.
