(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.

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.

What are the pros? So easy to grow!

What are the cons? Takes over

Review:

I grew these and Fairytale together. What great varieties! I've never been able to grow winter squash in Georgia. Very humid, and LOTS of pests. But this variety survived vine borers and squash bugs like a champ, and absolutely no powdery mildew anywhere. They do take a while to mature, but they produce HUGE fruit and LOTS of it. From 3 MDP vines, I harvested about 20 squash ranging from 20-55 pounds each. And they kept going through the end of November, although they finally succumbed to a freeze. Will TOTALLY grow this every year.

Delicious weighty squash
Easy to Grow 5.0
EarlyMaturity 3.5
 

What are the pros? Delicious and good storage

What are the cons? VERY tough skin!

Review:

Just picked one (of 5 from the one plant) today. 43lbs in weight and the four others range in weight from about 20lbs to 35 /- lbs. Another late starter has 6 small squash which may mature before the first frost. We live off this over the winter as it stores and keeps exceptionally well - remove any dirt and wipe over with vegetable oil and these will last until April the next year when stored in a cool basement. The flesh is a deep red/orange and very sweet. Makes good chips (dehydrated). Excellent for pies and you need less sugar when baking with it. Perfect for soups, curries, and stews. My 'dislike' is that the outer skin is tough. Not really a dislike as this means it is pest and disease resistant. As others have noted it is resistant to most fungal infections. Whereas we have lost other squash to deer, raccoon, slugs, and squash bugs, this one is a veritable fortress against pests. We use a saw to cut out segments. The seeds are delicious too. Grow this one!

Resists Powdery Mildew
Easy to Grow 5.0
EarlyMaturity 3.0
 

What are the pros? Beautiful, prolific

What are the cons? Late maturity

Review:

These took over my garden and surrounding space both because they are vigorous growers and because powdery mildew took most of every other squash we planted. These must be resistant because while the leaves of other plants were completely white and dead or dying from the mildew, these didn't even get a spot of it (and everything was crowded together so they would've if they weren't resistant). While it's exciting to see all the varieties of pumpkins growing in the garden, this one has been my favorite from the start. Large, a great shape, and beautiful. It's September now and the vines growing across the yard are beginning to grow more fruit, but I'm not certain if they'll reach maturity in time. The one I've been watching has been taking its time for sure. But it's still my favorite!

Review:

I tossed a less than ripe Squash into the garden at end of season last year. The birds feasted on that fruit for months! In the spring, up came a half dozen sprouts! Now, they're all over the place! This is a very fine, beautiful and delicious pumpkin I will always plant.
