(C. moschata)100-110 days-- 6-8 lb spotted fruits start out grey-green, turning yellowish when ripe. Shapes vary from a round, slightly flattened pumpkin to a more unusual bottle shape. Flesh is very thick, grading from intense orange nearest the skin to very pale in the interior. Flesh not particularly sweet; our grower recommends it for savory recipes rather than dessert uses. Originated among the Laotian Hmong people. Fascinating and extremely rare variety.

Review:

Best pumpkin I've ever grown. I bought these thinking it would be a nice small acorn-type for stuffing, but they're more the size of a squashed basketball or so. A sort of grubby looking squash on the outside, the flesh is deep red-orange and absolutely delicious in savory or sweet recipes: I stuffed the first one with a full pound of maple sausage, a half pound of wild rice, and three cups of chopped celery/carrot/onion (all sauteed together first) and there was still a good bit of airspace inside (mushrooms would be a good addition); this was the best stuffed squash I've ever had. Sweeter flesh than advertised was fantastic as a pie. Too delicious not to make it an annual part of the garden. Easy to grow: plant it and forget it. I got 2 squashes per vine, growing in the back yard under the corn, in soil full of gravel, without fertilizer inputs after early June. Will need a fairly long season (100 days). Seeds were also good roasted.
